Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $77

I am a software developer, technologist, teacher and musician. Straddling the business and art worlds, I work to combine music, culture and technology to build tools for fellow musicians and artists.

My technical background is primarily in Rails development, client-side application development and agile methodologies. With experience working in agency and contract environments, I typically focus on medium-sized bespoke web applications and startups.

Service Description

I can help you with Rails applications, or client-side apps built in Angular.js, Spine.js, Backbone.js or any similar framework. I've also got a good knowledge of CSS & HTML.

I've been a Rails and front-end dev since late 2007, when I started out working for an agency in New Zealand. I've been an independent contractor since 2010, originally working through a Wellington-based collective called Enspiral, then with DynamicClarity in Sydney, then independently in Melbourne, and now independently in Oakland.

I'm most comfortable bouncing between the client and server, ideally working on complicated client-side apps. I've also done a fair amount of heavy lifting in Rails (data ingestion, image processing), but it's not my first choice.

I'm strongly opinionated in favor of TDD and pair-programming, and tend to prefer non-dogmatic agile projects.
