Streets Ahead LLC is a small enterprise I founded with several colleagues in order to allow us to explore technology and create products that were outside the scope of our day jobs. We specialize in Node.js and Mobile. Since Streets Ahead was founded I have:
Completed advanced courses in computer graphics, linear algebra, networking, databases, cryptography, and compiler construction.
Completed an online graduate course in software engineering. Topics included software design patterns, agile methodologies, UML modeling, and more.
Professionaly I'm primarily interested in developing as close to the user as possible, I love designing and prototyping new user interactions. Over the past five or six years I've also developed a strong passion for functional programming. Because of my love of UI and functional programming I've become a huge fan of d3.js, React.js, and Clojurescript. To me, those three technologies do the best job of encouraging functional, declarative, UI programming. I've also started to explore Haskel and Purescript in an effort to dive deeper into pure funtional ideas.
When I am not playing with cool technology, I like watching movies or reading. I have been known to bake a pretty mean batch of cookies, and I have always enjoyed most things Apple.
