I started using Ruby on Rails during the Summer of 2006 and I've helped various business from start-ups to established companies in building web applications. I enjoy working with small teams of motivated individuals. I have the ability to *jump in* on existing projects and enjoy *figuring-out* things when there is sparse documentation. My primary skill is the ability to restate complex problems into simpler, more digestible forms.
I land dead center in the Persuador/Motivator matrix on every personality test I take. I’m also the executive director of a creative writing nonprofit (sidewalkchalk.org). I know how to tell a story. I know how to tell your story. I know how to tell it in a way that connects with readers on an emotional level, rather than coming off as a second-rate sales pitch. Whether you’re launching new software for social media integration, trying to draw some attention to your luxury sedan service, or putting together a marketing plan for your company’s next three years, I can make your copy connect. And I’d love to work for you.

In my years working as a software engineer I have developed a pragmatic view of the trade. Rather than pledge allegiance to a specific technology or stack, I try to leverage the advantages of the tools available to create programs and systems that work. Lately, for the last five years, I have been working with .Net, Linux, MySQL, MS-SQL, C#, C++, Ruby, and Perl. In that time I have developed firmware for embedded systems, desktop applications, web-based applications, and back-end systems. Even though the gamut is wide, I tend to focus on easy to learn and use programs. This usually implies hiding the complexities form the users and making the use of the system as efficient as possible. The core of my skills are the ability to adapt my existing knowledge to new situations and new technologies, the realistic view of the software development cycle, experience working in a distributed environment, and a sense of pride in creating good quality, well documented, working code.
