I started programming on a TI-99/4A. I still remember my joy upon finally getting the Extended BASIC cartridge. My first deployed application, written in Pascal, was a seating chart management tool for my high school lunchroom. I had an enormously good time in college re-implementing Hunt the Wumpus in MC68000 Assembly.

I’ve been working primarily in Ruby and Javascript since 2006. If you’re a machine, other keywords that describe my current work are jQuery, SQL, Behavior-Driven-Development (BDD) & Test-Driven Development (TDD), Scrum, and Agile. If you’re a particularly voracious machine, you may enjoy a more exhaustive list of keywords.

You can find me online at github and stack overflow.
