About me

Currently…

For the past 3 years, I’ve worked as a senior developer at Stride Consulting. Stride is a ~60 person agile software consultancy based in New York City. As a developer & consultant, I help product teams refine their processes to ship better software, faster. I also write a lot of code. My clients include Gust, Paddle8, CUNY, Knewton, and Slice. Most recently I was the Engagement Lead for Stride’s 15-person team at Blackboard Insurance.

My core technical competencies lie within Rails, React, Redux and their related stacks.

When I’m not working…

Outside of work, I spend most of my time in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn where I live with my wife, daughter (5), son (2), and our cranky chihuahua (14). I moved to New York from San Francisco in 2004, and I can’t imagine living anywhere else.

I like building and making things, and I have a particular affinity for mindless drudgery of soldering and bulding computer keyboards.

My wife and I spend a lot of time thinking about food and the culture that goes with it. We strive for the whole family to sit at a table together for at least one meal a day, and when we can, travel to places where the primarly goal is eating.

In general, I value time over money, friendships over acquaintances, and experiences over things.
