Previously

After owning and operating a webhosting company for ten years, I decided I preferred building things. So I learned some Ruby and I started working as a developer. A couple of years later, I joined Blendle as their fifth developer. I helped create and scale their micro-transaction system, which processess tens of milions of transactions per year.

During my second year there I was in charge of running the core backend service and responsible for migrating our systems to Amazon Webservices. After the migration was complete and a brief stint as part of the data science team, I decided to move on. After two years, seeing the company grow from a handful to 70 employees, it was time for a change.

Currently

I help companies get new products out the door. Last year, I took over lead development responsibilities for Zerocopter, build an Ember dashboard tool for Leaplines and a minimum viable product for a fintech startup. Recently, I've been helping the team at Beequip.

I've spent what little time I have left co-founding Snooty Software with my old Blendle buddy Lucas. Recently, we launched our first service: Textractor. My last side project was a multiplayer Pong game in Elm and Elixir.

I like challenging, complex projects. I prefer data-driven projects and creating tools, but I don't shy away from the odd UI challenge.
