I'm a Freelance Full-stack Engineer from Philadelphia. I've been in Software Dev professionally since 2011 and working primarily in startups I've done a bit of everything: full-stack web, mobile, devops, big-data, and project/team management. I currently freelance as a full-stack web developer focusing on Ruby on Rails and Emberjs, but I work on a whole assortment of other projects when it's called for. I'm a big fan of mentoring and I've done it both in and outside of work for a handful or more different junior engineers. I enjoy the process of helping others understand the programming world and it's a great way for me to put my own knowledge into practice. Outside of the tech world, I'm big into rock climbing, punk/hardcore music, and traveling. I've been on the road since Feb. 2017 and am currently living in Berlin.
Ruby on Rails
- 5 years experience
Ruby and Rails were the first programming language and framework that I picked up as a professional software engineer. This is where I started. I've used it extensively across probably 10 or 20 projects ranging from my University Capstone, Side Projects, and startups I've worked for. It is my go to tool and I find that I solve problems with Rails like nobody's business.
- 3 years experience
Ember.js is the first front-end framework that I dealt with and I ended up falling in love. I led front-end development for Artisan mobile using Ember.js, I've built an Ember-CLI Addon, and I've used it for ~10 projects over the years. It complements Rails extremely well and building web apps with that combo is something I know like the back of my hand. Particularly now with the JSONAPI-Resources gem.

Could've been better
Matt was great, it ended up being completely different than what he thought it was going to be and he helped work through the problems, brain storm, and he was extremely patient while I had to take a call from my manager during the session. I would definitely recommend him and plan on using his expertise again.

Great session with Matt. I'll definitely reach out to him again when I face other issues with Ruby on Rails.
