About me
Smiley face

I'm a Toronto based web developer specializing in Ruby on Rails and Javascript development. Most of my experience has been helping small companies solve their problems or bringing their ideas to life. Working alone or in very small teams, I am often responsible for the full stack. Everything from graphics, to database design and everything in between. This has given me great perspective and resourcefulness in solving problems or working with other members of a team.

When I'm not behind my computer screen, you can find me behind my drumkit. Although Toronto does not leave much room for an accoustic drumkit :( -- Music is a large part of who I am and my past time.
