Professional Poker Player
2008 - 2015 (about 7 years)
Resource and time management is an integral part of being a Professional Poker Player. I have brought that to my Software Engineering career along with grit, determination,...more as well as algorithmic thinking. I managed SQL databases chalk full of player statistics and boiled them down to develop an innovative algorithm for a game called Omaha hi/lo.
I'm a Software Engineer who loves diving deep into emerging technologies to create innovative web applications. I build full-stack products with Node.js and modern front-end frameworks such as Angular and React including Redux.
In my past profession, as a poker player, I consider my biggest accomplishment the fact I developed an innovative strategy tool for a game called Omaha Hi/Lo. However, most people want to hear about my single biggest score, which was winning a one-day online poker tournament for $100,000.
