AVAILABLE
As of May 25, 2015 I am available for full-time, part-time and contracted employment.

I provide full-cycle agile IT consulting for businesses in the Washington metropolitan area. I also serve remote clients in the United States and Canada, and I am comfortable working within both enterprise and start-up business environments. I am willing to relocate.
Experience: 4 Years
Location: Washington, DC

Overview

I'm an Agile IT consultant with a passion for solving problems practically.

I work primarily on web applications with Ruby, Python and JavaScript, and I use MVC frameworks like Rails for full-stack development. I have a background in a number of software-creation tools. I am constantly exploring new programming languages.

Most recently in the first half of 2015, I was the principal developer of the uQontrol Cloud Platform ([you must be logged in to see this link]), innovative EMV smart card software that secures online transactions. I led server-side design and development in an intense agile environment, utilizing Scrum, two-week sprints, continuous integration, planning poker and velocity estimation tools to maximize productivity. I built a Rails application that included a product ordering system, customer registration system, and an intuitive admin/management portal. I also coded and documented the cloud server's API, and worked with iOS and Windows WPF desktop development teams to integrate their software into the uQontrol Cloud Platform.

I am a graduate of Dev Bootcamp Chicago (2013), and I have a B.A. in economics from The George Washington University (2012).
