I love building software. I like big challenges, and I like working with dynamic programming languages. I like speaking at meetups and national conferences. I like working on open-source software.
I provide software engineering and technical lead services to a variety of industries. I am currently available for new projects.
TECH LEAD SERVICES
I served as a lead engineer and architect on a large gamification project. Our platform lets employees compete and earn achievements to promote things like environmental sustainability and volunteering. Built using Ruby and CoffeeScript.
I led a team of developers and designers in building a Ruby on Rails-based transportation platform for route and passenger management.
I built an automated system, using Python, to manage large digital collections of famous works at a university library.
I love writing and speaking about software engineering, and I love working on projects that reach a broader audience.
My work has been featured in CNN, USA Today, Providence Business News, and more. You can see more of my work below.
Mar 31 2015 - MeteorJS 1.1 is released and I'm pretty excited. Meteor has been a ton of fun for prototypes and weekend projects, so I'm psyched to see this framework get closer to mainstream adoption.
