The Best Problems are Analog Problems

Ever since I was young I've had a habit of taking things apart to see how they worked, whether it was computers, guitars, bicycles or websites. I am constantly fascinated by the way people share their stories, and strive to develop tools and digital products that connect people, and enhance real-world experiences. As a developer I have a keen interest in projects that directly influence people's actions and lives in the real world.

Check out some of my projects below:


I created my first website in the mid-90's- back in the days when code was written in Notepad, the <blink> tag existed, and patterned backgrounds were still in reasonable taste. Both the internet and I grew up quite a bit in the two decades since. A graduate of General Assembly's Web Development Immersive bootcamp, I currently work predominantly in React.js and Node/Express. I also have experience with AJAX, jQuery, templating engines such as Handlebars and EJS, PostgreSQL, Git, TDD/BDD, Wordpress, and I'm always looking to learn more.

When I'm not coding, I'm also a multi-instrumentalist, eduactor and guitar tech who works frequently in the greater New York City area. I've been lucky enough to tour nationally and internationally as a bassist and guitarist with Broadway shows such as Mamma Mia!, Bye Bye Birdie! and Cabaret. You can read more about that here.


I'd love to work with you on your next project! Please use the form below to get in touch with me and I'll be in touch as soon as I can. Thanks!
