Other Skills and Interests

I have a lot of experience building an managing complex web applications, but I'm much more interested in the impact of my work than in specific technologies.

I have a strong DIY ethic and love any opportunity to learn a new skill. Aside from the languages I've used professionally, I've also used Ruby, Node.js, React, C, C++, Scala, Python, and Elixir. I enjoy experimenting with digital electronics and microcontrollers, as well.

I'm a cyclist, an avid rock climber, and a fan of New Orleans culture.
