I’m a self-taught full-stack software engineer and library developer with a background in user experience design and accessibility. I have seven years of experience building and scaling high-performance Rails apps on the backend and frontend.
I worked at Shopify for over four years — first on the Privacy Engineering team and then on Ruby and Rails Infrastructure. I also maintain a few open-source Ruby gems, including Phlex, Literal Enums, and Action State.
I’m particularly interested in non-single-page-application frontend architecture in Ruby / Rails apps. I designed a framework for building UI components using object-oriented Ruby instead of a templating language and I’m also working on a specialised compiler to improve performance and make it possible to render differential updates.
