Hello, I'm

I'm a web developer who's passionate about clean code, delightful user experiences, and fostering freedom and inclusivity through decentralized, web3 technologies.


Beginning my career as a full-stack programmer over 10 years ago, I've specialized in crafting web applications (React, Ember, and Angular 1.x).

I'm a California native without a homebase. Since I left home at 14, I've considered myself a nomad. Over the last 6 years, I've worked remotely. Thankfully, my journey has led me to uncover the wonders of more than 30 countries. Overcoming changes and challenges is wired in me.

Besides programming and traveling, my passions include yoga, hiking, scuba diving (newly certified), building new homebases around the world, and personal development.

Software Engineer

(Full Stack)


Feb 2015 - Jun 2016

I started the Angular 1.x reporting platform here from scratch along-side a fellow server developer and engineer manager. Using PostgresSQL, I architected the user, roles, and permissions schemas. Then, I implemented dynamic roles and permissions and enforced them through middleware on our Express.js routes. We used highscharts and highmaps to display the impressions and clicks made on our Where-To-Buy (WTB) solutions.

Another third of my time spent at PriceSpider was used to create web crawlers using C#, ASP.NET and Regexes to to extract store and product information on seller sites.

In addition, I developed over 25+ HTML-embedded, WTB widgets on 25+ different e-commerce webpages.
