Programming professionally since 1995. There are few things I haven't done in the realm of web development. Most recently I've been primarily doing Ruby-centric coding. I pride myself on writing code that is modular, extendable, maintainable, and readable. I understand the difference between code that will get the job done fast and code that will get the job done well, and when to use each. I know how a little good planning can save countless man-hours. And, most importantly, I know the limits of my knowledge and when to ask questions of those around me.
I prefer to work with people who care passionately about the quality of their work, and make software that people actually want to use. Making the world a better place would be a pretty nice bonus.

At DockYard I've spent the majority of my time in a staff-aug capacity and worked to make existing apps more reliable, maintainable, and tested.
My role and responsibilities grew significantly during my years at OneDoor.
As the first web developer in a new business unit, I was responsible for putting together the first customer-facing graphs and information pages, as well as tools to allow customers to provision internal systems. As the team grew and we acquired Acerno, I helped improve and expand the primary internal provisioning system that came along with the acquisition.
My various projects involved the use of Java with Struts, Perl, and Python.
Worked on a web based system that combined Customer Relationship Management, Sales Force Automation, and Content Management tools to support the Freight Forwarding industry.
Leveraged Java, JMS, XML, and Perl to develop a modular integration server.
