You

Somewhere I’m consistently challenged and growing as a developer/person. Somewhere with great people, exciting projects (whether it be technologically or conceptually). Somewhere that cares about the community and gives back. Flexibility and lifestyle are important as well.

ME

I like pretty code, good beer, learning, cats, and music. In my spare time I read, cycle, and make (primarily electronic) music. Generic much?

ON THE WEB!

RELEVANT EXPERIENCE

Working with companies and individuals in various capacities. Mentoring, software development, etc. Predominantly Clojure & Ruby

Small startup working to grow communities for independent artists & labels. Sister company of Ghostly International. Did a little bit of everything here- refined processes, customer support, devops, and of course, software. Ruby (non-rails), AngularJS, and a healthy dose of Ansible with AWS.

Working closely with clients: requirement gathering via story carding, daily standup calls, Really ‘owning’ a project, other than financially, etc. ‘Agile’, Merciless Refactoring, BDD/TDD via Rspec and Cucumber, preferring a heavier integration-test based approach now, Pair programming (always), and all that other good stuff. Develop professional software, contribute to OSS projects, etc!

Maintenance and Debugging of legacy code, primarily on the LessAccounting and LessProjects applications. Implementation of new features. Client work such as GoPublic Application Behavior testing via Shoulda and Test::Unit

Full life-cycle application development of several projects, including: The Mark News, Quantology Development of a Facebook application, using their API and FBML (Facebook Markup Language) as well as Ruby/Rails and Sinatra for Quantology, a numerology application

Freelance web consulting, including: Client Acquisition, Software Development, Graphics editing/generation, Time Management, Billing, Etc. Primarily working with PHP (via CodeIgnighter/CakePHP, Wordpress/Joomla), JavaScript (via jQuery), and HTML/CSS. I was kind of terrible at the coding end of things at this point, to be honest.
