As a “code gorilla”, I have been writing code “in the jungle” for over 20 years and “in the zoo” for 7 years. I began as a child with various flavors of BASIC and Logo, before moving on to Visual Basic and then to more advanced languages such as C/C++ and Java. I thoroughly enjoy coding and (when necessary) debugging.
I am currently looking for remote, full-time or contract work. If you know of an exciting job opportunity in web-development, please contact me.
When I’m not coding (which is rare), I enjoy cooking, gaming, brewing beer, and traveling.
I am a polyglot, full-stack programmer. For the last several years, I have been developing efficient, scalable web apps with a focus on UX, a11y, and handsome UIs. The tree(heat)map below serves as a visual aid to my level of proficiency in programming languages and frameworks that I have used recently. I will try to keep this updated as my proficiency level is in a constant state of flux as I move from project to project or try new things.
Some of the development tools that I have experience with or use on a daily basis include:
I have very limited, hobbyist-level experience developing for iOS and Android platforms, both natively and cross-platform via PhoneGap and jQuery Mobile. This is an area of software development that I have enjoyed working with in my spare time, and I look forward to advancing my skill set in this realm.
