I have over fifteen years of full life-cycle software development experience. Much of that time was spent as a consultant to Fortune 500 companies, which gave me knowledge of several different industries. Over the last several years I co-founded two web start-ups (WallStrip.com and n4md.com) and launched SwingTradeBot.com (Rails 4.0) and FaveBot.com (Rails 2.3). In 2012 I graduated from the first cohort of Georgia Tech’s Flashpoint startup accelerator program

Refactored and rearchitected sytem to add a staging server, improve code quality (Code Climate grade rose from 1.9 to 3.2), scalability (moved from a single server to Heroku’s cloud) and performance (implemented memcached and Rails low-level caching; moved some processing to background workers; database and SQL tuning; upgraded from Ruby 1.9 to 2.0).
