Description

I am a Full Stack Ruby on Rails Software Engineer.

I wasn't always... I had been a barber for over 15 years and I while I had always worked as a part-time developer at night, I decided a few years ago to make the jump into full-time web development.

Since then I have been doing contract work for clients from all over the U.S. I have worked solo or on teams for clients ranging from enterprise and corporate, to small-to-medium businesses and individuals.

I studied Graphic Design I have a strong knack for UI design and it helps me in my full-stack services as I build the back-end. From project conception to deploying launches, I've touch every aspect of a Ruby on Rails application.

My earlier years as a barber taught me that business is about the people and ensuring they are happy and had a service or product they are pleased with. I believe if you focus on good work, the money will follow. Money should not be the driver, but ensuring a good product.

- Yes I just quoted myself, keep reading!

I'm passionate about life, my family, health, and being part of a community that can help each reach their goals. Web Development has been a wonderful tool that has helped me provide for my family, allows me time to focus on health, and has introduced me to a community of other developers and business people to collaborate on projects that let's us innovate to another level unseen before.

Recent life changes (I have a two-year old and a new baby on the way) has me looking for something a lot more stable and secure. I just want the ability and comfort to focus on work knowing I can take care of my family for as long as am able to.

Thank you for taking the time!
