Mission-focused software engineer who is a fast learner, a team player, and gets things done.
I’ve worked in many programming languages (Javscript, Typescript, Python, Swift, Objective-C, C, C++, Java, Ruby, Erlang, Lisp), databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL, CouchDB, Riak, MongoDB), operating systems (MacOS, Windows, Linux), web and desktop environments.
I value high quality software with comprehensive automated testing where practical.
