I graduated from Clarkson University with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2007 where I received dual minors in Information Technology and Business Administration.
I don't just stop working at the office. I invest a lot of time developing open source plugins, libraries, and writing on my development blog. When I'm not coding, I'm keeping up with the with my love of cutting edge technology keep me current within the industry.
I am primarily a full-stack web applications developer utilizing a LAMP stack. Laravel, Zend Framework, Kohana, Wordpress, and jQuery are my strongest assets. I am, however, language agnostic and can pick up on just about any project in a few weeks time. I have recently been focusing my efforts on frontend frameworks such as Ember.js and Backbone.js with Handlebars templating.
I have expansive knowledge of both frontend development and backend development. I am fully accustomed to deployment tactics with git, svn, and capistrano. I enjoy solving problems regarding security, scalability, and optimizing code.
