I am a principal full-stack software engineer, with diverse engineering, product, and evangelism experience. I have broad experience with technologies, industries, and scales of operation, having worked at enterprises as notable as Microsoft and Adobe, founded a startup which went on to Techstars and acquisition, won over 15 hackathons, and regularly built new products for fun or freelance. My work often involves web scraping, machine learning, and wearable computing.

I have over a decade of experience on the Microsoft stack, in addition to several years of Node.js, Ruby on Rails, and Python. I’m at home with backend development in ASP.NET and NodeJS as well as frontend development with HTML, JavaScript, and CSS/LESS. I have deep experience with web-scale data mining (including API’s of all major US social networks), Voice-over-IP (Asterisk, Twilio, and Tropo), and internet marketing (with an eCommerce background). I also have built projects involving wearable computing (mainly Google Glass), NFC and RFID (including low-level hardware), and a variety of other interesting technologies. I was a bit obsessed with my Google Glass: in addition to building the premier Teleprompter for Google Glass, I posted my extreme Glass videos at Glasshole.io.

My creations have won plenty of awards (from companies such as Twilio, Microsoft, Yahoo, Vodafone, Stanford, TechStars), and I love solving problems through code. I am also experienced at presenting at conferences and managing events in both professional and entertainment contexts.

On the side I volunteer in theater and event management, including at the nonprofit Great Star Theater in San Francisco. Additionally I am the main stage manager for Kat Robichaud’s Misfit Cabaret for our shows in San Francisco, Seattle, and Los Angeles. I’m also a lead volunteer at MomoCon, a 40,000-person annual convention in Atlanta. I love helping put on awesome events and contributing to people having unforgettable experiences.
