I’m a software developer/amateur woodworker who writes software that makes people’s lives easier. I have been writing software professionally for the past 5 years and have learned a thing or two from the talented people I have worked with. I am passionate about learning new things and like to share that information with anyone who will listen!
Whether I’m building web applications at an enterprise level, writing small applications to automate the boring bits, or just making wood shavings with a chisel and a mallet, my passion is making things and watching them come to life.
When I’m not making stuff, I love to spend my time running and hiking in the Columbia River Gorge with my wife Rachel…Oh! And I LOVE playing videogames…
Frontend Work: Built microsites (Awestruct, Slim, CSS and jQuery) from content documents on JBoss.org. Migrated content from jboss.org into Drupal and utilized Twig templating for componentization of specific content types. Created Web Components to consume dynamic content from ElasticSearch and display them onto book, event and product pages.
Backend Work: Learned the Drupal 8 REST API to build a migration parser (Ruby) in order to move content from ElasticSearch to formatted content types within Drupal. Created a solution (Java) to continue indexing newly added Drupal content into ElasticSearch for use on search related pages. Modified an existing ElasticSearch wrapper to index questions and answers related to specific tags from Stackoverflow’s REST API.
