Professional Bio

I've enjoyed computers since I was a child, so when I grew up, I decided to study software engineering. I enjoy the thrill of solving a computational problem, whether for myself or any of my clients. Over the course of a decade, I've developed software for several leading companies, including OpenTable, GoPro, and ModCloth. My favorite language is Ruby, which I appreciate for its simplicity and ease of understanding. I'm patient, relaxed, and analytical, and I enjoy playing videogames with my friends and watching television.
