I’m a developer, conference speaker and organizer, technical blogger, and mentor with over 11 years of experience in Ruby on Rails and Postgres. I’ve recently been learning iOS development with Swift and SwiftUI. Across my career I’ve also worked in Go and Node.js projects.
My career has been a split between consulting through well-known firms and product companies such as Heroku and Square.
In a recent project, I planned and implemented a modified Gale-Shapley algorithm / Deferred Acceptance Algorithm for matching hundreds of thousands of families with thousands of daycare providers in the State of Colorado, Multnomah County, and various other locales.
In the past, I’ve worked on a wide variety of projects. Here are a few highlights:
- Overhauling large systems
- Consolidating services into monoliths
- Finding performance improvements in Rails and Postgres SQL queries
- Applying machine learning to optimize search systems
I’m looking for fully remote, staff level or higher position where I can participate on a team as a mentor, take ownership of large projects, and deliver high quality code. I’m most happy when my work is clearly contributing good to the world. I’m not currently interested in working on anything blockchain or cryptocurrency related or projects with military or police applications.
Feel free to take a look at my Résumé. You can also find me on LinkedIn.
If you’re interested in working together, know of roles that could be a good fit, or would otherwise like to discuss this, please send me an email and I’ll be happy to share my availability for a chat.
