Resume

Over the past 14 years, I’ve had the opportunity to develop a wide variety of technical solutions for clients like Sony, MSN, AT&T, JCPenny, Chase, Nortel Networks, Marriott, AllState, Armani Exchange, ESPN, Dell, KitchenAid and more.

My work has caught the attention of peers and clients alike, garnering more than twenty industry awards. Being versed in a number of programming languages along with staying current on the latest emerging technologies and frameworks gets projects done, but my focus on clean organized code, attention to UX and my ability to clearly communicate concepts is what really differentiates me from other developers.

Mobile Development: Android, iOS
Fluent Languages: English, Italian
Programming Languages: C, C#, C++, Dart, Java, JavaScript, Objective-C, PHP, Python, Swift
IDE Experience: Android Studio, Atom, Eclipse, Microsoft Visual Studio, Sublime, Unity, XCode
Web Technologies: Angular.js, Backbone.js, CSS3, Express.js, Flutter, HTML5, jQuery, Laravel, Node.js, React, SQL, Vue.js, WordPress

When I’m not staring at a computer screen, I enjoy really really long bike rides, Casey’s gas station pizza, self-supported ultra endurance racing, actually getting lost in the woods and eating Nutella out of the jar with a spoon.
