About Me

I'm a technologist.

If you need development help, I'm probably your guy. I'm happiest in Python, JavaScript, Go, and C but I do believe in the right tools for the job.

If you have wireframes for your web idea, I'm available to build out a demo version that you can show investors quickly, for a flat fee. If you don't know what I just said, I'm available to help you figure out what you need to do to get a website off the ground, also for a flat fee.
