I've been programming, developing, & exploring multiple facets of the web since age 14. Currently specializing in ruby on rails since 2009 (TOP 5% on Elance). I generally work as a full stack engineer, building projects from the ground up and seeing them through to the end.
Seeking business opportunities for small start-ups or large companies on a passionate team with room for growth. Preference to humanitarian, philanthropic, & creative artistic endeavors.
Don’t mistake my diversity for a lack of focus. My ability to adapt, relate to, and service the needs of so many different clients in multiple niches of business has proven my rare value to anyone searching for help. My complex computing and business knowledge, combined with a contagious personality and superior social skills are a threat to any competing business.
