A LITTLE ABOUT ME

In my time as a full stack developer and entrepreneur I have worn many hats, from server side application programmer and database architect to product manager and working in partnership with clients to solve business problems. 15 years ago I co-founded a company that creates grassroots fundraising solutions for nonprofits. At the time grassroots fundraising was new to the technology and nonprofit world, and I’m proud to say our innovative product helped organizations raise over $200 million. I love the puzzle-like aspect of programming and pride myself on my track record for hard work and being able to take an idea, run with it, and deliver a product that has consistently delighted my clients.
