I am a professional web developer. I love building products for the web that serve people.
Professional Development Skills
I use Git a lot. I am well versed at committing, pushing, pulling, merging, rebasing, squashing, forking, cherry-picking, diffing, tagging, and releasing. I love leaving a codebase with a well documented and informative version history.
I live in the commandline. Primary unix-like, but I can do Windows when I need to.
