Solving real-world problems with code
I’m a grizzled veteran of the internet.
Senior Rails Dev + Generalist; 18 years Rails experience
Lead Rails developer with generalist skillset. I've been developing Rails applications since the weekend of the first public release of Rails and am the author of 2 Ruby on Rails books. I prefer to work in small teams where I can be involved in all aspects of the application development process and have rapidly created entire applications for both small venture-backed companies and multinationals alike. Have worked as CTO at two startups, building development teams and designing the architecture for the platforms. Rails is my preferred framework, but I have also developed applications in Elixir Phoenix and React Native.
Senior Rails Developer
I design and implement future proof, scalable architectures and data models that can grow with your business. Good code starts before the implementation, and I will support you in making sure product vision, requirements and technical product definition match. This will lead to a clearer design and extensible architecture. To make concepts transparent and actionable to all stakeholders, I document architectural decisions in human readable form. Additionally, I have experience in leading small and medium sized dev teams in an agile environment. Whether rapid prototype or final implementation, I write clean and maintainable code, preferably in Ruby and Python, and have extensive experience in modeling the data side in SQL and NoSQL databases, caches and messaging systems. I speak both code and human language. If you’re interested, feel free to contact me :)
Senior full-stack developer
I've been a professional developer for almost 20 years and so I've been around the block a few times and gained a lot of experience from different areas. After my Comp Sci degree I began as a computational linguist, applying NLP and ML to language analysis. Then I moved into data processing with Python and desktop applications in Java Swing. For approximately 12 years I've worked on web-applications for various clients, primarily in Ruby-on-Rails, NodeJS, but also in PHP. In that time I've also implemented several iOS apps. My portfolio goes in to specific details on the sorts of projects and tech-stacks I've been involved with. I've been enjoying Rails development a lot and where I push myself nowadays is improving application performance, typically by using better caching strategies, database optimisation, and architectural changes. I am happy to be involved from product genesis all the way through to product delivery. I know from experience that the long hard road is in fact in application maintenance and general product evolution. Therefore I can help clients with improving their existing apps, adding new features, or fixing bugs.
Full-stack engineer who loves semantic code―readable, crisp, and communicative.
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.
