Attention all Prospective Employers!
I am seeking great people to do software engineering work with. I can offer my authentic interest 🧠 a positive attitude 🌞 and commitment to growth 🌱.
Please find my resume here for your reading pleasure. Ever since I was a teen, I have been in love with computer science, from the most theoretical to the most pragmatic aspects. Like all long term relationships there are of course ebs and flows. But my dedication to the craft has never waned.
My preferred stack is TypeScript, Node, React, AWS and PostGres. I have also worked on production systems in Python, C#, C, Golang, Ruby, Angular, Vue and many many other things, but I prefer to stick with Typescript as I have become quite fond of it and am developing some tools to make it even better. However if there is a chance to work with Haskell or a Lisp variant I would take it.
I am especially interested in programming language design and tooling, in particular using large language models/transformers. My bread and butter is applying domain driven design and event sourcing to really complex domains. Additionally anything related to building a better internet - peer to peer protocols, semantic web, distributed data structures (CRDTs), content addressable protocols (IPFS) and graph data structures.
Im looking for jobs that are fully remote, with flexible hours. I want to work on teams with focused leadership, an asynchronous workflow with minimal overhead and a commitment to following industry best practices.
Experience Spotlight 🔦
Below is a random selection of my past jobs, clients and side projects.
You can find most of my projects on Github.

I took a year off to convert a school bus camper. I learned about welding, metalworking, laser cutting, CNC, woodworking, solar power, home automation, mechanical, CAD, diesel engines, biodiesel production, plumbing, HVAC and so many other things. I wrote a handbook (work in progress) and collected data on everything. I also took a wilderness first responder course and skiied across north america.

Atlas managed thousands of rental units in Ontario. I overhauled their IT infrastructure, from sales funnels and online presence to backend systems and security controls. I established process-focused digitization initiatives across all departments and performed an IT asset audit during the acquisition of tech startup Dormr.
I helped develop an insurance underwriting application for underwriting insurance policies in the healthcare industry. We transformed preliminary spreadsheet models into a desktop application suite and underwriting engine. We also laid out the technical requirements to launch an autonomous vehicle insurance program at Ford. I contributed to a white paper design of an insurance platform supplied by telemetry data from vehicles.
My first software internship was at Diebold Nixdorf, a large manufacturer of bank machines and point of sale systems. My role in the architecture team was to research and build PoCs of various tech – Redis, WebRTC, Angular, HTTP/2 and Cordova. I was mentored through the design of a session management and security integration middleware built on Redis.
