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 9 years. We both very much enjoy traveling and have been to numerous countries and plan to visit many more.
