I've taken a long and winding road to my career as a developer. I've worked in Higher Education, Civil Service, and Nonprofit, always in technology-adjacent roles, but I wasn't ready to commit to a software engineering career until I found a reason to settle down. So I spent a handful of years studying, learning and coding, and now I'm an early career Rails developer with a thorough grounding in algorithms and system design.
I'm the creator of TextSomebody, an application that allows users to initiate a text-message conversation with any SMS-enabled device, and to share the contents of that conversation through a unique URL. It makes use of websockets for real-time page updates, and integrates with Twilio's Programmable SMS API.
Before deciding to focus on Rails, I co-created Able, an A/B testing framework for Jamstack applications that uses Cloudflare's edge computing platform to serve different variants of static assets from the CDN on a per-request basis.
In summary, I'm a dedicated, hungry nerd with an abundance of curiosity and creativity. If you run Rails and you're looking for teammates, we should definitely talk!
