I am a skilled, self-directed, professional, and practical Ruby and Rails developer. I have an advanced degree in computer science, technical, editorial, and creative leadership experience, superior writing skills, a sharp design aesthetic, and an affable personality. I've worked with Ruby for more than thirteen years; I've worked with Rails since V3. I have substantial expertise developing multi-tenant, software as a service (SaaS) applications and custom e-commerce solutions, and am an ardent practitioner of development best practices, including git workflows, automated tests and deployments, Rubocop-driven style, and idiomatic, efficient, and simple code. I collect art, read mysteries, and try to herd a small pack of dogs.
