About Me

I spent 6+ years developing desktop and console applications for companies within the Direct Marketing industry. After attending a Ruby on Rails development weekend at the end of 2013, I began falling in love with web development. I spent the next several months familiarizing myself with Ruby on Rails as well as taking on an ASP.NET project at work with much success. At that point, I knew it was time to make a change and pursue web development full-time. In March of 2014, I was accepted into the Front End Web Engineering Academy at The Iron Yard and completed it in July. In August of 2014, I joined the Web Development team at Audiogon. We build awesome stuff using Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, JavaScript, and many other colors of the "web-dev rainbow". Check us out at www.audiogon.com.
