Professional Bio

I have been interested in computers since I was 11 years old, and now that I get to develop software every day, I regularly watch ideas materialize into real tools. I've built social media apps, knowledge organization software, and a CRM. I'm a fan of Ruby on Rails, but the recent updates to JavaScript have renewed my interest in it as an all-purpose language. I'm persistent, creative and curious, and I enjoy playing videogames, going to the beach, watching anime, and of course, programming.
