🍞 I can write your front-end JS
🔨 I can structure your HTML and CSS
text-overflow: ellipsis and a video player at M:Metrics, for example.
👾 I can work on your back-end
The coding pieces of my Computer Science education used back-end languages. I wrote a .NET MVC framework for Starling Systems before the platform included one, wrote a widget library in Java for Eoscene, and even wrote some COBOL to maintain legacy code at the WA State Department of Corrections. Even in front-end roles, I wrote a bit of PHP at Etsy and some Ruby at Editorially. I've written or maintained Node services at several companies, and use it as the back-end for most of my side projects.
🔭 I can help you plan your technical strategy
🎓 I can train your developers up
📚 I can write about your product
As someone who's learned many technologies on my own, good documentation is something I appreciate hugely. Besides blogging, I've contributed to docs on Mozilla Developer Network and I've written about using Node as a web server in a book from O'Reilly and a set of articles for A List Apart.
I'm an American citizen living in Spain. I speak English fluently, as well as beginner Spanish, German, and Italian. Relocation isn't practical for me right now, but I worked remotely for both Etsy and Editorially, and have experience being the only remote person on teams.
