About My Work

Although I can do other things, nearly all of my programming work is in web development. In the past, I’ve done a lot of Python and PHP work, but nearly everything I do these days is with Ruby on Rails. I spend most of my free coding time tinkering with Elixir but I’m not yet proficient with it.

While I work hard to keep up with the latest trends in technology, what matters most to me is simple, old-school craftsmanship. I love well-crafted things of all sorts, and I entered this industry so that I could build things that I am proud of.

Current Gig

I work in the The Garage, an internal startup incubator at UnitedHealth.


My job keeps me pretty busy, but I might have room in my schedule for small freelance projects.
