I primarily work with the Ruby on Rails framework for full-stack web development, and hold a high standard of quality in everything that I do. Although my skills with back-end development are stronger, I am also comfortable working on the front-end with Ember, Haml, Sass, and jQuery. I believe agile methodologies and test-driven development lead to better applications.
I love learning new things and pride myself on being a fast learner. I have an entrepreneurial spirit and have founded 2 companies. At the end of 2009, I took a risk, quit my job, and struck out on my own as an independent CPA affiliate marketer, driving hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of leads to various companies in the health, dating, beauty, and shopping niches through paid traffic - primarily PPC, social, and media buys.
My other passion is fitness, and after getting tired of the CPA industry in 2011, I opened a gym with my wife. These days, she runs the business and my only duties are keeping our website up to date and getting my own personal workouts in at night.
I'm available for freelance/contract work. You can reach me at [email protected]
