Curriculum Vitae

Most of my software experience has been in the world of web development. While I have always been an engineer, I have been responsible for leadership of many projects and teams, often taking on multiple roles. My primary software skills are:

  • Product and information architecture
  • Frontend development
  • Backend engineering
  • User experience design

I love working closely with designers and product managers to improve interfaces and create beautiful, standards-compliant, smooth-running software that exceeds’ users expectations. The languages and tools I’ve used the most are:

  • Javascript (with Backbone & React)
  • Ruby (on Rails)
  • Python
  • Go
  • PHP
  • C++ (mostly on microcontrollers)

Of course, no web developer would be worth much without a deep knowledge and understanding of HTML, CSS, and other markup languages (I prefer to use SCSS). Along with those language fundamentals, I’ve also done a lot of server-side development and operations work, building projects with and making extensive use of these tools and platforms:

  • Amazon Web Services (EC2, RDS, S3, and Redshift)
  • MySQL, Postgres, & Redis
  • Hugo SSG (for this web site!)
  • Wordpress
  • Algolia
  • Varnish
  • Graphite, Grafana, and STATSD
  • Chef

With web development I’ve spent a lot of time in working in particular with audio libraries, advertising toolkits and servers, and developing custom integrations through external APIs.
