web dev

Currently, I'm VP, Engineering at 1stdibs.

I've worked as an engineering director, senior developer and visual/UX designer during my >15-year career on the web. I've spent the majority of my professional life conceiving, developing and designing web sites, online experiences and internet applications. My experience has been in e-commerce, ad-tech, on-line video and media.

I'm an expert in JavaScript (currently: es5 & 6, Node.js and Backbone), HTML5, CSS (via Sass) and PHP. I've formerly worked day-to-day with ASP.NET/C#. Plus, I have some experience in a smattering of other languages (Python, Ruby).

More on my professional experience in my resume ( pdf or plain text) and on LinkedIn.
