Professional Bio

I first became interested in programming when, at 14, I discovered how to make a simple game using Visual Basic 6. Whether I'm building a game for myself or helping clients change the way their industries operate, the crux of development is always to solve problems and make life better for people. This is why I love Ruby: it makes helping people easy through its intuitiveness, and there's no problem that it can't solve. I've helped car dealers speed up their turnover, construction companies manage projects more easily, and salespeople best take advantage of their stacks of leads rather than get lost in them. I'm meticulous and curious, and when I'm not programming, I enjoy playing videogames and being a dad.
