I'm a software engineer living in Austin, Texas. Writing code has been a big part of my life since I was a kid. I do it for work, I do it for fun, and I'm pretty good at it!

My biggest strength is thoroughly planning every task, which ensures my projects run smoothly. Attention to detail makes me ideal for handling situations where a small issue could cause large problems.

I thrive in fast paced, result driven environments. My knowledge of technology and project management allows me to find the solution with the biggest return for the least investment. This makes me a valuable asset on any team.

Work Experience

IBM Security, Senior Software Engineer

I've begun my journey on an incubation team in IBM Security as a Senior Software Engineer.

This is a fascinating role, where I get to shape the future of IBM's technology.

HumanN, Lead Software Engineer

HumanN, a functional foods and nutritional supplement company hired me as a Lead Software Engineer to modernize their technology. They are one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S., making the Inc. 5000 list the last 6 years in a row. I contributed to this hyper growth by building customized backoffice tools and automation, migrating to a more scalable data warehouse, integrating directly with vendors, and designing a reporting layer to identify changes in the market.

Keller Williams Realty, Senior Full Stack Developer

June 2015 - May 2019

KathodeRay Media, Web Developer

May 2011 - April 2015
Albany, New York

Full Sail University, B.S. Web Design & Development

September 2008 - July 2010

Subscription Management

Subscription Management

Retention is the most important revenue stream for any D2C brand. I built a custom subscription management platform, which integrates deeply with our technology and business. In order to stay PCI compliant we tokenize credit card information through our payment provider. This application can handle millions of dollars a month in transactions, and has detailed logging and error handling for our customer service department to monitor. Additionally, a customer facing portal allows users to manage subscriptions through their Shopify account.

Snowflake Data Warehouse

Snowflake Data Warehouse

HumanN's rapid growth lead to numerous challenges with their data. We migrated a Microsoft SQL Server data warehouse to Snowflake. This project included over a dozen data sources loaded via ELT tools, automated exports to FTP and S3, and a heavily used Tableau reporting layer.



Kelle is the Keller Williams Realty Personal Assistant and Artificial Intelligence. It's the first and only AI that knows about real estate trends and how our agents operate. I architected and developed APIs that provide Kelle with agent data, keyword lookups, and localized transaction history.

Internal Support Tool

Internal Support Tools

As Keller Williams' technology grew, I was tasked with building internal administrative and support tools. These backoffice applications control roles and permissions of the agents, and display a summarized view of the agent's database. They provide great value to the support team, as well as project managers.

Microservice Architecture

Microservice Architecture

I built and maintain many microservices at Keller Williams, following the JSON API specification, with documentation written in Swagger. These microservices power our flagship websites and mobile apps.

Profit Goal Calculator

Profit Goal Calculator

I was the lead developer of the Profit Goal Calculator. Agents set a yearly profit goal, then I work backwards to generate monthly milestones. In 2016, it was announced on stage as the flagship product. I spent the next few months improving algorithms based on feedback, and integrating with our other applications. The following year, it had 164,196 users.

Event Websites

Event Websites & CMS

One of my earlier projects at Keller Williams Realty was to design and develop a reusable, updatable, and beautiful event website. I chose to build a custom WordPress theme and plugins, as well as simple deployment scripts. These scripts allow Marketing to launch new websites on demand. This template is currently used for 9 ongoing events.
