I graduated in 2007 with Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Systems Science and Bioinformatics. My first job was working on projects for the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security at MIT Lincoln Lab. The majority of my supervisors held doctorates. Those supervisors were instrumental in helping me understand new subjects like digital signal processing and statistical modeling of real, measured data. I was uniquely positioned to write full stack web platforms to collect, analyze, and present data. That became a specialty for me at MIT and beyond.
After MIT Lincon Lab, I continued working on web architecture projects for a few small companies including one NGO. My work often bridged the gap between programming software and deploying/maintaining the infrastructure upon which the software ran. Additionally, I became a resource for explaining git and organizing the project management best practices for remote teams to efficiently collaborate.
As a consultant, my projects have ranged from serverless Amazon Web Services to full stack web development to inventory and analytics using Google Spreadsheets. My goal is to find the cheapest and most efficient platform that fulfills the immediate and long term needs of my clients.
I am currently involved in a couple projects: construction and maintenance of a HIPAA-compliant, serverless, web infrastructure running on Amazon Web Server on behalf of a physical therapy tech startup; software infrastructure design and oversight of a freshly graduated software developer for a small local startup; and technical training for recruiters regarding the technologies they encounter in job listings. I have capacity for additional consulting work.
I'm happy to work with people remotely or locally. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to start a new project with me!
