I'm a "Full-Stack" Developer focusing on web technologies. My professional passions lie in creating cutting-edge applications that focus on rich user experiences, masking complexity with the refined clarity of clean UX design. If a project can combine rich user interfaces, 3D data visualization, complex big data and astronauts or the International Space Station, then you've found the dream project for me!

My career thus far has allotted me the opportunity to work with teams of highly talented individuals on some highly complex projects. I've been able to learn the ins and outs of estimating, system architecture, planning and implementation, effective refactoring, teamwork, leadership, product ownership, project management and client/stakeholder relations.
