I'm a Ruby on Rails web app developer and an "all around good guy." I'm one of the "IT guys" that enjoys working with people - in addition to my Mac - to make sure the product I'm delivering is top-notch. And as much as I know I'm the guy you want working on your next Rails app, I'm also very aware that I'm not perfect. I view every person and experience as an opportunity to learn. I'm pretty good at what I do, but I'm coachable and always looking to expand my horizons.
