During this time I learned a lot about software development and building web products. I worked on a variety of projects including: Building the technology for an eBay consignment store startup, including integration with eBay via APIs and a storefront module for use with in-person customers A crowdfunding platform by a non-profit organization A collaboration platform founded by a former Microsoft executive Some projects bringing the discipline and structure of Rails to rescue PHP spaghetti code A variety of other startups, e-commerce projects, content-oriented projects, multimedia, and more MyPizza.com / Slice, Technical Co-founder / VP Eng: 2010 - 2017 In 2010 I moved to NYC where I met Ilir Sela who was starting MyPizza.com which was later renamed Slice. I joined as founding engineer and built the product and managed all the technology for the first four years, and then as the company started to grow I stayed on through Series B of VC funding and substantial growth of the company as VP of Engineering.

I am a RAILS developer with about 4 years of experience in designing, building, and deploying web apps with Ruby on Rails.
For the web, I believe Rails is not just a development framework, but also a development philosophy that teaches good programming practices like MVC, DRY, KISS, separation of concerns, and self-documenting code. I’ve carried those same Rails principles over into everything I develop regardless of language.
