About Me

I am currently a Front-End Software Engineer at Therapydia. I have 6+ years experience developing standards-compliant web applications. I am a driven, skilled, self-directed, professional developer. I have a fervency for well organized, well written code.

I enjoy well-crafted bourbon, European futbol, classic nintendo video games, dry humour, the San Francisco Giants, an occasional concert, playing catch with my family, exceeding expectations, flipping into swimming pools, debating classic literature with my mother, breaking stereotypes, watching my children succeed, watching my children learn from their failures, giving high-fives, running long distances and most of all, being a developer.

A few clients I have done work for during my career are Trek Bikes, Nationwide, Gold's Gym, Miller Brewing, Sherwin-Williams, Kimberly-Clark, AT&T, Nike Cycling, Xavier University and Volkswagen, among others.
