Developer, Maker, Home Automation Tinkerer, LEGO Fanatic

I'm very passionate about technology and mentoring others. My goal is to show that passion through teaching these courses in hopes of helping you grow as a developer.

I have over a decade of development experience. I love tinkering with technologies of any kind and try to remain platform agnostic. I'm not a die-hard Mac, Linux or Windows guy, and use all of them on a semi-regular basis, though most of my experience has come on the Windows platform.

In terms of development, most of my experience has been with .NET, namely C#. I have done projects in Java, as well, and have some experience with C/C++. I have also worked with web technologies, such as Angular, HTML, CSS and a host of other JS libraries. REST & SOAP technologies like WCF and WebAPI, as well as in Node JS and Golang, round out most of my server-side/backend technology experiences. In terms of database management systems, I have worked with Oracle, MySQL and SQL Server (2000, 2005, 2008) over the years. I have created a couple of iOS and Windows Phone apps, so I have a bit of experience with Objective-C and XAML/Silverlight, as well.
