I am a principal engineer with over 10 years of industry experience, working on all parts of the web application stack. My forte is client-focused architecture, but I enjoy developing server-side almost as much as client-side, especially when working with a delightful programming language or environment. I excel in a high-paced workplace, where code is checked in daily, new technologies are considered regularly, and the application is updated frequently.
All your base are belong to us.

Studied computer engineer for three years with two summer programming internships, but left after my third year because the classes did not hold my interest and I started making a lot of money using my programming skills to automate video games and sell in-game currency.
