Full-Stack Web Developer

Specializing in Ruby on Rails


About Me


I am a recent graduate of CareerFoundry's 6-month web dev program during which I built a fluency in Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5, and CSS3. I built two projects from scratch, using MVC, RESTful, and object-oriented design patterns. I learned the value of version control while using Git and GitHub, and implemented unit, functional, and feature tests using RSpec, FactoryGirl, and Capybara.

Right now I am looking to join a great team where I can continue to learn and make a contribution.

I also have an extensive background in enterprise software sales, both in on-premises solutions as well as software-as-a-service platforms. With my newly acquired development skills and my past experience, I bring a unique mix of skills to the table which I believe are not normally found in a developer. With this mix, I am able to understand both the development side as well as the business drivers and issues and communicate across both disciplines.

I really love Ruby and Rails and am continuing to learn more about these every day. At the same time, I am expanding my skill set by learning advanced Git, PostgreSQL, Python, Linux system administration, and more.
