ski bum turned developer

I started the web path in 2005 while trying to make a career in the ski industry.  So far my tech experience has been a rollercoaster.  Initially I just wanted to build a site for my dad; who knew it would morph from a hobby, to a career, to a passion. I love challenging jobs and new technologies. I am a life long learner and enjoy teaching.  

I really enjoyed my time working as an Engineering Lead for Famo.us in San Francisco.  But all good things must come to an end.  I am now full time back in Tahoe writing code, acting as a mentor, teaching kids, and enjoying my family.

I started an organization called TahoeJS to channel all of my educational ideas.  Our main focus right now is teaching kids about code with the Sphero robots. 

I am one of the owners/administrators of BeerJS.  It may look just like a GitHub repo but its actually a JavaScript organization that is present in 50 cities around the world.  Good code and good beer; you can't beat that.

My current tech interests:

  • JavaScript
  • ReactJS
  • React Native
  • Teaching
  • Physics in the web
  • WebGL
  • 3D Rendering
  • NodeJS
