I'm a full-stack software developer with a specialization in large database driven web applications. For the past 18 years I've designed, built and maintained e-commerce platforms, content management systems, APIs, data warehouses, data integrations, analytics & reporting dashboards, interactive voice recognition systems, and data mining applications. As an early adopter of Amazon Web Services I have extensive experience building cloud-native web applications as well as migrating legacy applications to the cloud. As the founder of FLUENT, a digital design and software development agency, I have 15 years of business and management experience which complements my technical background.
