I'm a Sofware Engineer at GE Aviation, where I currently spend most of my time working on a new isomorphic web application that uses React and Redux on the front-end and Node for the back-end REST API, along with a custom analytics & recommendation engine. I also use the following languages, frameworks, and tools for freelance and personal projects: - Node.js and backend frameworks such as Lux and Sails to create back-end applications, APIs, and command-line tools. - Front-end frameworks such as React, Vue, Ember, and Backbone to create front-end interfaces and single-page applications. - Testing frameworks like Jest, Enzyme, and Mocha. - Development tools like Babel, Webpack, Gulp, and ESLint.
- 7 years experience
I have over 7 years experience developing custom WordPress plugins and themes and building websites, web apps, APIs, and more on top of the WordPress platform. I've done contract and freelance work for a number of well-known WordPress agencies and development shops (XWP, SkyVerge) in addition to high-profile clients like AllRecipes.com and PETA. I'm also an active member of the WordPress community and I've contributed to WordPress and WooCommerce, as well as various related projects such as the WP REST API and WP CLI.

I use Git on a daily basis and am familiar with a number of its more advanced features. Between my job at GE Aviation, my freelance work, and my personal projects I find myself writing a lot of code and juggling a lot of projects, and I use Git on all of them.
I was responsible for implementing a complete redesign of the main site and the Dish blog as a WordPress theme, creating a number of custom plugins to handle some of the more complex back-end features (for example, syncing the WordPress user logins on both sites to a single sign-on API), and then migrating both sites to a new multisite installation.
Forward Center Blog
Previously a WordPress site hosted at forwardcenter.net, now part of the main Drupal site. I installed and configured the blog module, created the necessary page / block templates, styled everything to match the rest of the site, wrote a script to migrate all the posts from the previous database, and set up a redirect from the old domain to the current URL.

Wes did a great job helping me build a fairly complicated webpack build. It took about as long as I expected, and in the end I got the production code I was looking for.

Very patient and gives good guidance. Helps structure sessions in a way that helps you build on things you already know and provides good examples to the things you don't know.
