I am a Senior Software Developer with 10 years of solid experience with Ruby, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Javascript, Perl and a host of other technologies. My experience covers the full stack of software development from the server layer, data model, application layer, to the user interface. I’m passionate about building well-tested, quality software.

The first piece of software I ever wrote, in the sixth grade, was a graphical adventure game set in the age of dinosaurs written in Applesoft BASIC. These days I get excited about building scalable RESTful API’s and responsive web applications in Rails (and I still like dinosaurs).
