Full Stack Developer | Rails and JS
Hello! I'm a chatty full-stack developer from the midwest. I have a BS in CS and good mixture of project and programming experience from this last 15 years. I've lived in a variety of places in the midwest and east coast, working at a number of creative agencies start ups along the way. This last few years I've work for myself, consulting with startups on some of their most challenging needs. I'm especially talented in my ability to change my focus 'aperture'. I can move between seeing macro level business and strategy requirements and zoom into micro level code adjustments. I also excel at communicating those requirements up and down the chain of command. Rails may be a giant pile of CRUD but it's an excellent glue to keep this series of tubes held together. I consider myself an enthusiast and a 'full-stack developer' meaning not only do I have a bit of experience at many layers in the HTTP/TCP/IP stack but I also understand the fundamentals so I can learn new things quickly. Cheers!
Technical Leader with 10+ years of experience growing engineering teams, launching high profile projects, managing large budgets, and mentoring
I have held pretty much every role as a Rails developer. I started off as a software engineer and consultant for a web development company. I co-founded a couple of start-ups and took on the CTO role. Joined a few established companies as a lead dev or architect. And most recently I joined a startup as the VP of Engineering. I have also been a community leader, co-organizing the AustinRB and Austin on Rails meetups. My specialty is helping engineering teams establish the appropriate processes to be productive and efficient, and helping even seasoned engineers learn things they didn't know about Ruby and Ruby on Rails.
25+ years experience, 15+ full-stack, 5+ Rails
Ship sooner; 15+ years Rails/JS experience
I’m a very experienced senior engineer. I’ve launched several venture-backed and startups from zero to thousands of customers within months, architected and operated a HIPAA-compliant telehealth service, and helped scale an online pharmacy at Amazon. I’ve preferred Ruby on Rails for more than 15 years, and I’m comfortable with React, Next.js, Remix.run, and OpenJS Architect and serverless architectures.
Bitten by a Radioactive Ada Lovelace and Imbued with Super Programming Powers!
🝓 I remember, as a young child - old enough to read, but still viewing the larger world through a lens of magic - one fateful day, I resolutely decided what I "would be when I grew up". That day was the day I realized that someone was paid money - as a job - to draw comic books - and THAT was my destiny. I held fast to that choice for a number of years, until college actually, when I discovered computer programming. And so, faced with choosing between the art degree I had worked toward for so long, and changing majors to computers, I decided neither one would do. Two bachelors degrees later, I stepped into the workforce knowing, although it stung to forgo my comic book artist dream, that the challenges in the tech field would be far more rewarding. Roughly 17 years, 21 weeks, and 6 days ago, I watched some guy with a funny accent live code a blog in like 5 minutes. I became instantaneously enthralled with this "Ruby on Rails" framework, but most especially, the Ruby language. The first official 1.0 release of Ruby on Rails wouldn't happen until later that year, but I was hooked. As a side project, I built my first Rails app - a drag and drop photo scrapbooking web app. My young hubris was sure it was a million dollar project. It never made a million bucks, but it was an impressive demo of my work, especially considering the draconian state of cross-browser compatibility at the time (Internet Explorer 6 still had a large share of the market). And so, in January of 2006, I jumped headlong into the wild west of professional Ruby on Rails development. Here I am 17 years later, I'm still glad I did. I've learned a lot since then. Being a part of that early Ruby community opened me to a slew of new ideas and technology - agile methodologies, extreme programming, test driven development, pair-programming, among many others. While it may not have the gravitas of drawing Super-Peep KAPOW-ing an Evil-Doer on the comic page, I do get to use technology I'm passionate about to craft things that make a difference.

Lead Ruby on Rails Engineer
Software Architect at Rooster Teeth. I love Ruby and Startups. Building http://bornbir.com and http://wollendance.com at night.
CTO and Product Engineer, 15 years Rails experience
I've been working with Rails since 2008, founded three companies on Rails in the e-commerce, marketing and SaaS space. I like building things, bringing ideas to life and scaling them to the first few million users. I'm very product orientated and can be very scrappy - something very important when you're starting a company and testing the market - but at the same time very opinionated and deliberate, I like clean code and understand the importance of accounting for technical debt. Recently I've been diving into Stimulus and Hotwire and really loving it. I think its a credible alternative to React and SPAs. Open to short term contracting work, maybe more.
