About Me #
I'm a passionate technologist building for the web since 1994 and mobile since 2003. I work with technologies that are simple, efficient, allow for focus on solving real world problems. Built startups, agencies, led teams with clear visions, pragmatism and empathy.
This is my little space on the internet. I share my thoughts, opinions, a public journal of sorts.
I've recently worked at Shopify leading web and mobile foundations as a Director of Engineering. Built and ran Brewhouse where we built and sold Goodbits. Created and ran the vanruby.org meetup. When I lived in London, I helped co-found GoFreeRange, a leading rails web development agency. For more check out my LinkedIn.
Dad to two lovely children and have the best partner I could wish for. Sometimes they appear on my Instagram.
Currently spending some time learning modern web technologies, exploring new opportunities, mentoring individuals, and advising companies on engineering leadership/scaling.
