I'm a web developer, both by trade and by hobby, and a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (Dominican Republic 2006-2008). I'm a mediocre triathlete but an above-average dodgeball player. I enjoy homebrewing and homebrew-drinking. I'm an unapologetic music snob but I'm not too in-your-face about it.
I have over fifteen years of experience as a full stack engineer developing and maintaining web applications for a variety of user audiences.
I've worked with Windows/Java/Microsoft SQL and Linux/Apache/MySQL/(PHP/Python) stacks, several popular MVC frameworks, content management platforms, front-end frameworks, APIs, yadda yadda yadda.
I served two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer (Dominican Republic, 2006-2008) where I taught basic, intermediate and advanced computing courses (in Spanish!) to youth and adults in my community, all while eating copious amounts of boiled plantains.
Working with technology isn't just in my job description. I enjoy problem solving and working to expand my skill set on my own time.
That includes spending far too much time setting up a pixel-perfect Conky config, writing a full-blown web application to track and comment on my music collection, or maintaining the server that hosts this site.
This combination blog, portfolio and sandbox serves mostly as a reason for me to agonize over my lack of design skill.
