About Me

I am a polyglot web developer who loves solving interesting problems and building great products. I am comfortable leading a team of developers, but strive to remain humble to ensure we find the best solution to a problem.

Though my preference is for backend work, I typically end up contributing where I can add the most value, whether it's architecture, frontend, backend, writing tests, or documentation.

When I am not writing code, I volunteer at Christopher House, binge watch Netflix with my wife, and enjoy the occasional craft beer.

Inovance TRAIDE

Inovance TRAIDE

Inovance's TRAIDE provides a platform for traders who want to automate their strategies but do not have any programming experience. They can backtest their strategies by inputting the asset, timeframe, and desired technical indicators. TRAIDE will then help them choose parameters with a strong signal and export their strategy to MetaTrader.

As frontend developer, I was responsible for adding new features such as advanced trade statistics (Sharpe ratio, drawdown, etc). I also provided insight for the product as a newcomer with a trading background.

The TRAIDE frontend is built entirely in AngularJS.

Lisa is an open marketplace that connects beauty artists to customers on-demand. Customers can see artists near them in real-time and book hair cuts, massages, manicures, and more. Artists can provide services at customers' homes, their own home, or a salon.

As lead API developer, I was responsible for all architecture decisions. I lead the API team in the implementation of models, controllers, endpoints, automated tests, and was solely responsible for development operations.

The Lisa API is built with node.js and Postgres, documented with Swagger, tested with mocha.js, and deployed via Ansible.
