Full Stack Developer with Startup, Agency, and Business Chops
I am deeply passionate about building great software products. Willing to get out of my comfort zone to grow and learn, I always give 100% to any project I'm involved with. Fortunately, 20 years of wide-ranging professional endeavors have honed my ability to quickly ramp-up on new projects and teams, minimize communication overhead, avoid the perils of over-engineering, and deliver remarkably fast product development.
FULL STACK Developer
Years spent as a full-stack developer allow me to manage any aspect of product delivery from architecture, to database, to API, to third-party integrations, to web UI, to native mobile applications, to DevOps.
Years spent as a technical, hands-on co-founder for internet startups have made me a master at uncovering the real needs of users and quickly translating them into viable technical solutions.
AGENCY & CONSULTANCY
Years spent in the agency and consultancy world have fine-tuned my ability to listen to client needs, dive into unknown codebases, and deliver high-value solutions that beat client expectations.
Years spent on non-technical persuits have made me well-rounded in how all aspects of business operate, creating a breadth of real-world experience that gives me an uncanny ability to quickly understand and solve real problems.
Over the years, I’ve worked on a lot of different products.

Projects That Haven’t Shipped

the nature of my work is that some don’t.
