As a "Masters" (Lead) engineer at Capital One, my role combines full stack development (python, nodejs, angular) with internal evangelism. I was a founding member of the...more team that built the internal high-level monitoring framework used by executives, interacting with many poorly-documented internal APIs and providing much-needed insight to dependencies and their uptimes.

What I Do
I am a lead software engineer who focuses on rapid-prototyping. My work often involves web scraping, data mining, or wearable computing. I have over a decade of experience on the Microsoft stack, plus NodeJS, Ruby, and Python.
My creations have won plenty of awards (from companies such as Twilio, Microsoft, Yahoo, Vodafone, Stanford, Georgia Tech, TechStars). I love competing in and winning hackathons, have worked at companies as notable as Microsoft and Adobe, took my own startup through Techstars Boulder, and regularly build new projects for fun and profit.
