Credentials

Summary

I design and program web applications in a variety of programming languages. I strive to stay in tune with the trends of the industry and to produce code that is readable, sensible, and maintainable. I work in PHP, Python, JavaScript/Node.js and have experience in Java, C#, and a few other languages. I'm fond of Postgres and have plenty of experience in MySQL as well. I've worked extensively with jQuery. While I am excited about the React/flux paradigm, I am more intrigued by front end libraries such as Vue.js. I am a skilled Drupal developer. I maintain Drupal modules and submit patches to Drupal projects. I have presented and run training at technical events including Drupalcon. I am highly analytical and enjoy sharing my knowledge through teaching. I have been involved in teaching throughout my career and currently hold a full time faculty position.
