I am a seasoned software engineer and architect with 25+ years of experience in the industry. I have a passion for software design and am driven by my love of technology. Over the course of my career, I have honed my skills in both frontend and backend development and have worked with a variety of technologies and platforms, including Ruby on Rails, React, AWS, NodeJS, Postgres, MySQL, and more.
My expertise in agile software development and DevOps has resulted in a proven track record of delivering successful projects. I am an advocate for Test Driven Development (TDD), the Minimal Viable Product (MVP) approach, and pair programming. These practices have not only helped me build high-quality software solutions, but have also served as a means of mentoring and leading teams.
I have also made significant contributions to cost-saving measures, such as reducing AWS spend by 60% through optimization, autoscaling, and scaling services only when required. I have also helped improve code quality through unit testing, peer reviews, and implementing CI/CD pipelines.
In my roles, I have worked closely with clients, stakeholders, and cross-functional teams to understand requirements and deliver scalable software solutions. My experience in iterative and full lifecycle development for Internet, commercial, distributed, and n-tier solutions has allowed me to play a vital role in the completion and launch of many successful projects.
Overall, I am a highly motivated and skilled software engineer and architect, with a passion for great software design and a proven track record of delivering successful projects.
