Developer's avatar

Endlessly curious former electrical engineer turned full-stack developer after graduating from Flatiron. Experience in JavaScript | React | Redux | Ruby | Rails | CSS | Material-UI | SQL.

After spending approximately a decade practicing electrical design, installation & repair initially in the aviation sector and then in the marine sector, I decided to learn something new. The software environment is ever evolving while the electrical installation field is quite repetitive. Flatiron gave me the chance to enter a new world full of tools and techs that are endlessly interesting. For example, I recently adapted active storage into my rails application that is saved to the postgreSQL database instead of hosted on a cloud service. The use of blobs encouraged me to learn about the JavaScript Blob() and File() constructors that I was previously unaware of. That is what is continuing to draw me into development on a daily basis. I am passionate about learning to code, helping others to code and building useful applications that people can use to improve their jobs or lives. I have a vast amount of experience in troubleshooting and fault-finding. It has served me well during my time at Flatiron. Without that experience, I imagine that every error I had to work through would have taken exponentially more time. While electrical and software engineering are different fields, fault-finding is always about tracing the correct progression of events in a system and determining the point at which the progression stops. My personal preference is that debugging in software is more fun than building applications. Problem solving is a practical knowledge that comes from experience and I enjoy practicing it.

More than ready for Primetime

I'm a Software Engineer based in New Jersey. Rails is my specialty, but I'm a generalist with multiple years of exposure to both the Ruby and JavaScript universes. I know how to build Ruby applications without Rails as well, having worked with Sinatra. I also have a good relationship with RSpec. 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. Like I said, I'm devoted to the Rails framework. However, I'm not just a Rails programmer. I'm a Ruby programmer who's also fluent in JavaScript, with experience in frontend technologies like React and HTML/CSS as well. 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!
