Hire me


Got my start in Java almost 20 years ago, then moved to PHP before finding home in Ruby and Rails. There's no other stack quite like it and I'm content here.

Passionate about refactoring and improving the quality of existing code. RSpec is my jam because it's expressive DSL is easy to read and understand. I don't believe that strict adherence to "design patterns" is always necessarily the best option, especially when adopting those patterns require breaking established conventions.

I prefer monoliths to microservices and server-side rendering to SPAs. I like to keep things simple. I like to stick to what works.

Containerized apps are fun, but there's just nothing quite like a simple bundle check && bin/dev on your desktop to get you up and running.

I've worked in AgTech, FinTech, RegTech, and GovTech-adjacent. AgTech was probably my favorite so far. There were so many new and interesting challenges to tackle in that industry. It was a low-pressure, low-stakes environment where exploration was what the journey was all about.
