As an individual, I am constantly seeking knowledge in any form. I am passionate about technology in all of its forms, whether that be a new programming language, hardware, or applied computer science, there is nothing I enjoy more than actively pursuing new ideas, thoughts, methods or technologies. By nature, I am an extremely curious person, never quite satisfied with 'just enough'. I love throwing myself down the proverbial rabbit hole, and getting in over my head, whether that be learning a new programming language, teaching myself a new algorithm, or just learning how a piece of hardware works. I am most content when I am in an environment where I can constantly learn.
As a professional, I enjoy and excel when working with passionate individuals who share my love of technology and new ideas. I prefer to work in a team environment, as the level of collaboration between like minded individuals often brings about great things, new ideas, and lots of cool code. In my job, as in my life, I look for an environment where I can not only learn, but also contribute meaningfully.
Over the course of eight months, I have been responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of a large legacy Ruby/Sinatra web application. This included adding new features, modifying existing features, and general health diagnostics and bug fixes.
Wordpress also plays heavily into my daily workflow, as many of the web projects I participate in are built using the CMS. This has involved theme development (with the help of a designer), custom plugin development, and general configuration and tweaking of the CMS to suit our business needs. From October 2013 to October 2014 (1 year 1 month) Web Developer @ Alongside a small team, I created, developed and launched small to large scale websites with a CMS backend, building out both front end and back end systems.
