Backstory: I was first introduced to WordPress while working as the webmaster for the Computer Science Department at the University of Rhode Island in 2006, so I have been happily coding on the platform for the better part of 14 years! Brief Professional History: Luckily, I have had the privilege to work in many diverse areas/companies, such as: - The developer of a reverse auction site for used car parts. - The core maintainer of a middle-tier service linking a proprietary database to a web front-end. - A developer tasked with reverse engineering and enhancing a popular massively multi-player online role-playing game. - The CTO of a marketing agency serving myriad clients, from small one-person startups to enterprise real estate management firms. - The senior architect of an email marketing SaaS platform. - The lead engineer of an online multiplayer collectible card game. - A senior engineer for advertising and brand management-related services at an international credit card company. This has allowed me to ramp up on many of the core technologies needed for today’s web, including: - HTML, CSS and vanilla JS (the basics) - PHP, jQuery and MySQL (the WordPress basics) - Node.js, React and Electron (the fun new backend and frontend technologies) - Java and C/C++ (the standard enterprise languages every developer should know) x86 assembly and IDA (reverse engineering 101) Fun Facts: - I am a die-hard Star Wars fan, so my close friends call me Jedi. - I am frequently described as a man who thinks “outside-of-the-box”, since I come up with novel solutions to problems. - I play a mean saxophone! 😉
