Hello from an avid developer! Android development for large-scale companies has been my focus since Spring 2012, though I was familiar with the language well before that. I am greatly interested in front-end development and design, but find great joy in the challenge of building all virtual components. This is a passion that applies not only to Java, but to languages I already know and do not know quite yet.
I am familiar with all stages of software development, from consultation to deployment to support. I have worked alone and on teams large and small. My past projects have lasted weeks or many months. Let's talk open source, mobility, and data visualization.
Some of my recent adventures were tangled in the web-world, allowing me to gain experience in a multitude of web goodies including (but not limited to): Grails, Backbone, Marionette, NodeJS, CoffeeScript, and LessCSS. Sprinkle-on some Cordova/PhoneGap, and these technologies have provided new and fun challenges in the realm of mobile+web concurrent development.
Sometimes you may find me away from a computer exploring the outdoors, writing, or indulging in all types of Chicago cuisine.
