I am a full stack web developer living in Northern Colorado. I am passionate about clean elegant coding and documentation standards. I am also deeply interested in automated deployment and disaster recovery projects. I believe that developers should abstract away monotonous work with automation and tools.
In addition to developing for the web I have a strong interest and experience in leading teams and organizations to achieve success with I.T. Throughout my career I have excelled at bringing business leaders and I.T. together to achieve goals in both private and public sectors.
I enjoy helping others reach their goals through the web.
