I am a a full stack web developer with extensive startup experience in San Francisco and Los Angeles. I started projects, maintained large enterprise systems and lead development teams. I bring a developer's perspective that enjoys pragmatism and action while avoiding red tape.
Education is the most important quality in my life, both and a teacher and a student. I surround myself with those smarter than myself to learn as much as possible. Teaching has greatly helped my communication skills with less technical people and is incredibly rewarding as well. I won't spend my time on any project that doesn't offer either a learning or teaching opportunity.
Outside of work, I am the teacher for the Back-End Web Development course at General Assembly Los Angeles and Lead Organizer for the LA Code for America brigade. Through teaching and civic hacking, I hope to help others solve problems both in business and civic hacking.
If you're in Los Angeles, Let's grab a beer.
