I build stuff. Love troubleshooting, love "getting it to work". Hate architecture "improvements". Love energetic coworkers who enjoy memes and are motivated to do things well because they don't want to let each other down.
I have built entirely new products for start-ups, worked on highly tested and established space systems software, and sifted through petabytes of financial data on Wall Street.
I wrote code that will someday run on the Orion spacecraft in space as it orbits the moon. As a member of the systems and fault management team, I write code that keeps the vehicle safe under unexpected conditions.
We built a 100% bot (not mechanical turk) chatbot for shopping, available on slack, mesenger, telegram, and our custom web interface. This included everything from search to checkout, including splitting payments between multiple people. You can't just copy this stuff off stackoverflow.com.
I wrote a distributed performance testing suite for the FreeFlyer orbital dynamics and spacecraft operations toolkit. In my spare time, I also built the node.js server and Angular app for the very first prototype of the Meridian spacecraft operations "ground station in a box" software.
