I am currently looking for my next venture. I am most interested in a senior IC or lead role, focusing on the backend, internal tools, or logistics.
Until recently, I worked at Good Eggs, building logistics software for an innovative food distribution model.
I have built a myriad of types of software, including publishing, consumer/B2C, enterprise/B2B, and logistics. I have worked across the full web stack: ops, system architecture, databases, backend and frontend application development.
I am passionate about developing high-quality, maintainable, DRY, automatically-tested software using cutting-edge technology. I strive to balance the best of Agile with long-term planning and delegated ownership.
From 2010-2012, I ran a development consulting shop called New Leaf Digital, specializing in the Drupal CMS and LAMP stack environments.
I served over thirty clients, with projects including a rebuild of a global news site, site repairs, and improving scalability and performance.
For most of these projects, I served as the lead or sole developer, as well as project manager and sysadmin.
During the same period, I co-founded and operated a startup bringing technology to the antiques industry.

I thrive in an open-source world, and have contributed to dozens of projects over the years.
Most recently, I was an active contributor to many open source projects at Good Eggs.
In 2013, I led the creation of a Redis Sentinel Client for Node.js. I contributed to the test framework from which we spun off the testing toolkit Jeeves. I wrote a little IRC history bot for my team to stay in the loop.
