I’ve been a Software Engineer at Renaissance Learning in Wisconsin Rapids since February 2015. Prior to that I was the Technical Director and Senior Engineer at eBizResults in Oshkosh for three years. I’ve been a freelance web developer since 1999.

I have used many technologies, including JavaScript, HTML/CSS, C#, C++, Java, Python, and PHP. I am familiar with a number of frameworks, including AngularJS, jQuery, Laravel, CodeIgniter, Yii, and others.

I’ve developed a number of custom single- and multi-tenant Wordpress and Joomla plugins, a statistics library in C#, and a number of Single-Page Applications over my career.
