Well hey there. Thanks for checking out my page. So you want to know more about me do ya? Well then let's go take a look I wrote and maintain Mission of Mercy, a clinic management application for free dental clinics. I'm also a cofounder of Mendicant University which supports programmers in developing both their technical skills and their social contributions, to make a real positive impact upon the world. You may also have heard of my newsworthy work on Spot the Baddy: A crime spotting game for ages 5 and up.
I'm the technical lead on Mendicant University's OSS, including university-web, puzzlenode, and the site you're on right now, community. I've also released a few gems: md_preview unobtrusively adds markdown previews to textareas, md_emoji adds emoji parsing to markdown, and prawn-labels generates labels using Prawn.
When I take time for myself I enjoy playing my trumpet and practicing yoga. I started the University of New Haven Marching Band when I was a freshman in college.
I'm very fortunate enough to work for Madriska Inc. which is a development consulting company based in Chicago, IL. I do a little of everything for Madriska including project management, systems development, and a lot of rails work.
