About

I'm a developer specializing in web-based technologies. I'm a pretty full-stack kinda guy, comfy with everything from database schema design to broad system architecture to front-end HTML/CSS/Javascript work. I write well-tested code & aim to constantly improve.

Outside of work, I love working on open-source, playing DotA 2/StarCraft 2 (as well as other games), playing/composing music, reading, bicycling, running & snowboarding.
