If everything could be Object-Oriented, the world would be a better place...

Living and working in both the front and back-ends of the web world, I enjoy developing with Ruby on Rails, Backbone.js in CoffeeScript and CSS & SASS.

A fun jQuery plugin that mimics jquery-raptorize, that I created as an example for a blog post on how to create a jQuery plugin using JavaScript Prototypes.

I am a Object-oriented fanatic, who continues to keep an eye on the next "new" thing. My favorite projects are done in Ruby on Rails and/or Backbone.js. I've done extensive work in PHP and multiple CMSs built on PHP. In JavaScript, my range is from a love of Backbone.js to heavy use in jQuery to a fond memory of Prototype.js. I've dabbled with node.js and express.js, building a pretty cool chat client with a login system.

All my work is done using HTML5, CSS3, SASS and CoffeeScript. I have trouble fathoming how we all got along in web-dev without SASS or CoffeeScript. Each I believe adds speed of development and ease of readability for "the next guy."

Personal Life

Like a lot of programmers, I'm quite the cat person with two cats Attila and Eeyore. I've been married to my wonderful wife for 10 years. We both very much enjoy traveling and have been to numerous countries and plan to visit many more.
