volunteer profile

Eastern Standard Time

I am a Product focused Software Engineer living in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. My current technology interests include working with dynamic languages and their associated web frameworks, building loosely coupled SOA based micro services, and learning about JavaScript MVC frameworks.

I believe in well written testable code, constructive code reviews, iterative development, collaborative white boarding, choosing the right tool for the job, and stepping away from the keyboard to think deeply about technical problems.

I graduated from James Madison University in 2004 and have been working as a software professional for the past twelve years. In my free time I love to snowboard, workout, and read about economics and investing.

Specialties: Ruby, Java, JavaScript, Rails, Spring, Hibernate, Guava, AngularJS, JQuery, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Git, HTML5, CSS3, Jenkins, JUnit, RSpec, Vim
