I am a talented and experienced full-stack web application developer. I work almost exclusively in Ruby on Rails. I love developing applications “the Rails way”. I appreciate the brilliance of the Rails architecture and enjoy using it to build world-class applications. I’ve created a number of complex systems using Rails including e-commerce sites, inventory management systems, scheduling systems, forum applications, internal organizational systems, and order fulfillment systems. My rails knowledge is also augmented with intimate knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, Sass, SQL, and jQuery.
I like to help people solve problems using technology. I have single handedly built sites from the ground up that have processed $1m+ per month in sales. I have experience in C/C++, Ruby, Rails, MySQL, PostgreSQL, jQuery and iOS development. I love to build my solutions using Heroku, AWS; EC2, S3, RDS and PayPal, Stripe or Paymentech, Auth.net for payment processing.
So why do we write code? We write code to solve problems. I started my web development career in 2009 as a Wordpress developer. I since then have focused primarily on Ruby on Rails. I have had the privilege to work on a multitude of projects ranging from cloud based law firm management to open source CMS. I'm confident in calling myself a full-stack developer. I'm able to take your idea from a thought inside your head to a fully functional application. I have experience working with many APIs including: Stripe, Twilio, Paypal, Phaxio, Twitter, Facebook and others. I'm capable of working well with other developers or by myself.
