About me

I try to keep a balance. After spending ~7 hours in front of a computer screen, I typically hit the climbing gym or head to a yoga class. On the weekends, I like to challenge myself with some outdoor climbing, mountaineering, or sometimes just some good PNW microbrews. Pushing my limits has led me to my tech career path. I enjoy leveraging my engineering training in its purest form of solving problems using new technologies on a daily basis. I’m also decent at foosball.

Languages & Frameworks

Currently I'm a solid Javascript developer with the Ember framework, with interests in Angular and React.

Despite working mainly in the front end, I touch our backend Scala/Java + MySql stack on a daily basis as well.

Previously I've taken a course based in Ruby on Rails, completed project with Node.js and have work experience with deploying IOS and Android Applications with Angular Ionic.

This summary of technologies is by no means all-inclusive (for example, I've written programs in C and have a working knowledge of Vim), however in an age with so many languages, deployment tools, and frameworks, I feel there is added value in a meaningful overview rather than a exhaustive list.
