summary

Full-stack software engineer with a long track record of shipping successful products, and with two Computer Science degrees in my back pocket.

My first career incarnation was as a full-stack Java engineer (7 years), my second career incarnation was as Technical Co-Founder and Man of Every Hat (8 years) for a successfully-sold all-in-one web-based solution for running healthcare practices.

In the last year I've transitioned to Ruby on Rails and React. (I had a good run with Java but wanted to learn something new yet elegant!) I'm seeking entry- or mid-level positions in these or similar technologies where your team can leverage my deep background and blazing fast learning curve to contribute to your company's mission in a life-affirming and life-enhancing field such as education, travel, or science.
