Career

I’m a second generation software developer (my mom was a COBOL developer) who prefers to work in the back-end segment of the stack using the Ruby programming language and FOSS.

I started my career back in 2005 and I’m still passionate about code and solving problems with technology.

You can find me on LinkedIn and GitHub.
