I am a 2009 graduate of Case Western Reserve University with a degree in computer science, and since then I've worked as a software engineer for LoudDoor, a Columbia, SC-based startup. I work primarily in PHP, Go and Javascript (jQuery) (along with HTML/CSS), but have some .NET experience and have dabbled in a few other languages. Right now my main project at work is a market research platform built on top of Facebook. I also maintain a bunch of smaller projects on the side. When I'm not coding, I enjoy running, reading, and watching baseball.
