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 video games, playing/composing music, reading, bicycling, running & snowboarding.

Experience

Rebuilt the development environment used by all Gen2 developers, based on Docker & Compose. Rewrote the bootstrapping process for new environments, cutting new setup time from days down to 20 minutes. Provided user support & 8 releases for a community of ~150 developers. Ad-hoc managed a team of 4 for several months. Helped improve performance, security & test coverage.
