Key Strengths

IOS • Ruby • JavaScript

Key Accomplishments

Last 6 months working on startup ideas full time. Most of that doing iOS/Node.js for a dating app we didn't end up launching. More recently, exploring enterprise software in Ruby on Rails.

2 years as a Senior Front-end Engineer at Twitter. Little more detail on that:
* Worked on #newtwitter
* Tech Lead for Search+Photos (introducing hugely revamped search results and native photos to the web client)
* Senior engineer on the Growth team

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Strong generalist engineer, with particular experience on web stuff (but capable in iOS and backend stuff). I have some engineering team leadership experience and am a very well-regarded code reviewer and quality driver for projects. Additionally, I can think about product in a pretty sound user-centric way.
