I really love solving fun and interesting problems with software. I am a full-time software developer with over a decade of experience doing a bit of everything…Android, web, backend, scripting, database, and some machine learning.
What do I do professionally?
I am a software engineer who’s worked at Sony Ericsson, Netsertive, and WillowTree. I am currently a Senior Software Engineer at ArchiveSocial, located in lovely downtown Durham. At ArchiveSocial, I’ve primarily worked on prototyping and shipping a product that crawls and archives websites for our customers.
At the moment, a semi-regular freelance gig.
In a future moment? 👀
What about for fun?
I code for fun. I have started all types of software projects (and finished some). Checkout my Github.
I love music, specifically urban music aka rap, hip hop, r&b, jazz, and soul. Part of my passion comes from playing instruments as a kid, making MIDI music in QBASIC on an old IBM computer as a kid, and deejaying on the radio, parties, and shows in college. I love going to live shows for small and large artists.
Finally, I love all types of running. I’m mostly into street running, but am actively getting into running on trails and such.
Five year plan?
