About Me

My story started in New Zealand, where I spent my childhood in Whangarei. I attended the University of Waikato, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Computer and Mathematical Sciences with First Class Honors, and met my wonderful American wife. Soon after graduation I emigrated to the United States to live in Napa, California. I now live in Pierre, South Dakota with my wife, dog and cat, where I work as a Lead Software Engineer for a local consulting company.

My Specialties

Like any self-respecting full stack developer, my skillset is varied. I'm comfortable working on either side of the stack, whether that means updating a database model & API to fufill a new business requirement, or creating a user-centric UI. I often find myself starting a new personal project to try out a new framework or language. Here's a sample of my favorite technologies that I use on a near-daily basis.

MySQL

Angularjs

.Net

Gulp

Javascript

Node.js

Sass

Visual Studio
