Background

Summary

I have a passion for developing unique solutions to problems, taking a test driven approach.

After working for 3 years in this industry I have a wide range of experience developing Ruby applications from large Rails to small Sinatra applications.

I love the process of writing code using Vim and Git. It makes me feel like Sam Beckett, the Quantum Leaper(not the author) "bouncing around in time, putting things right which once went wrong."

Experience

Ruby on Rails Developer

Unboxed Consulting
(3 years 3 months)

I have worked on various iterations of Ruby on Rails projects during this time, some starting from scratch and picking up others where legacy code is becoming an issue. I enjoy both the former is rather exciting but the latter is more challenging but rewarding.

These projects have included: Channel 5's - SSO, EDNA Platform and 5FWD as well as Apps For Good, StoryWeb and Method.

I have also worked on behalf of Unboxed on client sites as part of an agile team, having to quickly adapt to new environments, teams and codebases.
