I have a wealth of experience using MVC frameworks, including Spring, ASP.NET and Play. I’ve worked in application development environments with individualized deployments operating on dedicated servers, and in virtual, cloud-based, containerized deployments based on both Docker and Microsoft Service Fabric.
I specialize in building applications that help solve real-world problems. Weirdly enough, however, I also have an MBA, so I speak the languages of both the business executive and software engineer. I am also pretty darn good at consulting those who need a plan to capitalize on the data they gather as a course of business and helping them chart a course toward the future.
Where I've been and what I've done
My career has been full of many excellent opportunities, but it has been very unconventional.
Towards the beginning of my career, I worked in digital media, focused on visual display, web layouts and structure, and production of news content. In that former life, I managed a publication that won the 2013 EPPY award for best sports website in America. I’ve was an editor, a writer, a producer, a reporter, a photographer, a videographer, a designer, and a brand manager.
Now, however, having left media behind, I am a software engineer. Most of my development work has been in financial tech and in integrations with payment processing systems, but I also have worked on a few e-commerce endeavors here and there. I have both built new web applications from the ground up and inherited massive existing projects with large amounts of technical debt. In all cases, I have strived to leverage technology to make life better and easier for those around me.
I’m also a decorated scholar. I have an MBA and two Bachelor’s degrees.
