As Lead Full-Stack Developer, I assumed a pivotal role in overseeing and managing web properties and storefronts that utilized Magento 2, Python (Django), and PHP (Symfony) technologies.

Lastly, my contributions extended to enabling multi-channel fulfillment through Amazon and eBay via a custom GoDataFeed integration, and I emphasized documentation and best practices to optimize developer processes and reduce the time required for various documentation tasks, including deployments, bug fixes, feature enhancements, and root cause analyses (RCAs).

I enjoy 3D printing, flying drones, continuous learning and attempting to keep life balanced. I'm a Linux enthusiast and have at least one Raspberry Pi running at any given time. I spent much of my life creating things within a web browser so my recent creative outlets generally include 3D modeling and recreational programming. When not in front of my computer I can be found spending time with my family, making poorly timed jokes, getting outdoors and practicing boxing.
