I've been involved in programming for as long as I can remember. What began as tooling around in BASIC during high school evolved into a career as a web and application developer.
My passion is in application development specifically developing fast and fluent RESTful API's.
I'm currently the technical lead at Blend Marketing
Go is my favorite programming language, if I could write Go for the rest of my life I wouldn't complain one bit.
I've implemented major web applications using both the Symfony and Laravel frameworks. I've also worked with the Craft CMS platform.
I'm not a frontend developer, but I've spent a good bit of time at my current position learning how to write solid OOCSS using semantic markup and SASS.
API development is my true passion. I prioritize simple to understand and fast interfaces. I enjoy all RESTful API's but prefer HAL Implemented API's most of all.
I've spent quite a bit of time managing linux server systems. Using puppet for all the provisioning and maintenance. Puppet gives us a fast, powerful, and consistent way to manage large numbers of client nodes.
Open Source Software is near and dear to my heart. I've grateful to the countless of individuals who donate their time to make my job easier.
I maintain a couple small libraries, mostly for working with API's. Giving back to the community in the form of OSS is something I will always continue to do.
