I'm a generalist full-stack engineer suited perfectly for early stage startups.
I've carved a niche for myself as a first technical employee and tech consultant. I will work with you as a founder to internalize your company's vision and build out your product from the ground up with quality, tested, maintainable code. I will help you deploy your code and make the first technical hires to continue building the product and grow the team.
I was the first hire at Teachable, Walk [Your City], Farm At Hand, and Epic Playground and served to build out their early technical infrastructure and products. I have great testimonials and lots of satisfied past coworkers and clients.
For most projects, my go-to stack is Node.js, React.js, and Postgres, but I will use whatever tools are right for the job. I'm equally experienced with Rails and Angular.js. I like Gulp as a build system and AWS for infrastructure. For fast, robust APIs and JVM-heavy projects I like Java with DropWizard.
I've dabbled with Python and Go and I'm always interested in learning the latest tools but I understand the tradeoffs of shiny new technologies and well-established, stable communities.
