I like to build neat things. That doesn't mean much of anything specific, so let me elaborate: Technology and software has given us an immense power over our lives and how we engage with and access the planet as a whole. Literally the whole planet, I'm not parroting a trope. When I write software, specifically web software, I am able to craft information and data into shapes and forms that provide immediate value as tools to other humans. And through the web, these tools can access millions of other people in an unimaginably quick amount of time. The speed with which we can create these tools feels as close to magic as I'll probably ever get. And of course, I am in love with the process of creating said tools. New and well thought out ideas bring me an incredible amount of excitement, because it means I get to work with others to bring something new into the world. To make something from nothing is indescribable -- we as developers have morphed and transformed and constructed random collections of thoughts into a shape, given them a structure, and paved the foundation for others to use those new relationships of information to create value. Sometimes immensely so. Those are neat things.

I have been writing software and npm modules for node.js since 2012, with 16 packages published to NPM. Some of my original software for node.js is still in use today where it was deployed, unchanged. With the addition of ES6, ES7 and the babel transpiler, writing software for node.js is easier than ever, and is quickly becoming my go-to.

I started using rails when it was originally released back in 2009. I happened by a teach-yourself-rails book that was launched with it and have been hooked ever since. The majority of backend projects I have worked on are with Rails. It's a fantastic framework, and I've flexed it to work with so many different domains in projects, speaking volumes about its capabilities.

I started using ember with version 1.8 in 2014, along with firebase, to quickly build small economic experiment programs for Chapman University's Economic Science Institute. Since then, my love for the framework has grown tremendously. Almost all projects I build on the side use ember and firebase. One larger application I wrote was the Antiquarium project, with ember as a frontend deployed in the amazon CDN and a rails + postgres backend hosted through heroku, making it simple to build quickly as a one-man-team.
