I'm a classic hacker, and not in the "I dabble in tech stuff" way. I've been programming in low level languages for since 2000. My passion lies in teaching others. In the hacker world, there are often Master:Apprentice relationships, but this is a more rare concept in traditional CS/engineering; which is unfortunate. When it comes to work and life, I am very passion driven. I don't take on just any project, but when I do it is with a great amount of energy, loyalty and dedication to quality. My core beliefs can be summed up quite easily: First, do not harm. I am a firm believer that business and teams should operate with a mindset of never harming the brand, reputation, customer or peers. Operate transparently. For me this means that in both personal and professional life it is best to openly share challenges, conflict, doubts or opinions. Present solutions, not problems. Problems always exist, but focusing or exaggerating those problems only creates more tension and stress. Communicate clearly. Cut to the chase and make clear points. Talking about facts and logic does not always require a lot of thought, emotion or backstory.

I've been working with swift, literally since the day it was announced. I built one of the first Swift web servers (Pegasus), and have been using it for iOS and client work regularly for two years. I'm also a thought leader in the swift community as the creator of Unicorn.TV (formerly SwiftCast.TV). I'm happy to help with anything swift related, and really enjoy teaching Swift.

I'm no expert in Go. I mostly build out API's with the language, so I'm quite different than the average community which seems to mostly consist of ops guys. However, I am a master in Go when it comes to MVC web applications and API's. I've also used Go extensively in penetration testing and network monitoring, so I'm very familiar with much of std lib and have also worked on proprietary kernels for hardware and IoT.

I've built three large Single Page Applications (SPA) with React and Redux. I've worked with Auth0, react-router and standardizing REST API requests to various back-ends. I know the internals of React very well, and am a crafting things the "right" way.

I've worked with email since the first dotcom boom. I know all the tricks to get templates to render properly with Yahoo, Gmail, Outlook, Thunderbird, and all browsers. I've also worked with most major mail systems from setup to transactions and automated processes. Hubspot, Zoho, Mandrill, Sendgrid, MailChimp are all my cup of tea and as an added bonus: I have many friends at these major mail companies.
