I combine strategic business analysis with full stack web development to build high-quality applications.
I work with organizations driven by experimentation, inclusiveness, and leveraging technology for social benefit. I live in Denver, and work with innovators around the world.
Above all else, I want to work with groups that share my drive to create great experiences on the web. Though I have broad experience on both the technical and entrepreneurial sides of innovation, I hope I'll never stop feeling like a beginner. I thrive in cultures where colleagues can't help but learn from each other's unique talents and perspectives.
Depending on the overall team, my skills fit into a few possible roles:
My specialty isn't in web project strategy or engineering individually,
but specifically in the combination of business and technical challenges.

Flow width = relative amount of focus. Because technology experience involves many overlapping layers, they are separated by main layer of focus.
Web server administration & optimization (Apache, Nginx, IIS), Linux/UNIX operating system administration, Cloud infrastructure implementation & management, Project/Issue management tools (JIRA, Basecamp, Trac), source collaboration tools (Github, Gitlab, Bitbucket, Trac), virtual team collaboration tools (Slack, Hangouts, IRC), external API integrations, e-commerce operations (PCI compliance, payment gateways, merchant accounts, ways out of needing merchant accounts, logistics integration, inventory, multi-jurisdictional taxation)
