Hi, I’m Michael DiBernardo. Many people call me ‘Debo.’
I’m a software engineering leader in Toronto, Canada. I have worked in the software industry since 2006.
Most recently, I was VP Engineering at Wave. I was responsible for growing the engineering team and its practices as the company scaled. I was also the primary architect of Wave Payments, which has processed billions of dollars in payments since its release. Wave was acquired by H&R Block in 2019.
I’m certified in Mental Health First Aid, and have experienced psychophysiologic disorder. I have great faith that mental health practice will drastically improve in the next 20-30 years, and I hope that we can pick up the slack until then.
I’m a practicing Buddhist.
