Software Engineer

I'm a New York based engineer with a passion for the web.

I've been in web development full time since I was seventeen years old. Before that I've always had some sort of hobby project online. I launched my first website in 1998: a GeoCities website for Pokemon cheats. It had a guestbook where users could share their own tricks. When I saw it was actually getting users, I was hooked. Since then I've gone on to work with organizations such as Martha Stewart Living, MTV and The FDA.
