Relevant to software, I have three passions: tooling, data, and the web— the web because of its unparalleled ability to distribute information, and data because its proper analysis and presentation allows people to make informed, and therefore better, decisions. Tooling— so contentious!— is more a matter of priority, and my priority is this: I desire to craft software that is correct, readable, elegant, and performant. No language provides me this capability as does Haskell (and associated PureScript, Elm, etc)— the basis for my current and future endeavors.
and relative confidence
As part of an international and asynchronous team, I contribute to an array of Haskell-based event processing services and use real-time data analysis to deliver valuable and relevant native advertising.
Developer, Project Lead
In addition to maintaining a near-perfect record on client happiness, I contributed numerous technical talks on functional programming, assisted others in learning Haskell, and ran the Madison Haskell Users Group.
I helped renovate and rewrite a massive, hundreds of read/writes-per-second, distributed, document-parsing and ETL process.
Center for Inquiry 2009–2011
Developer, System Administrator
Along with administering this international non-profit's servers, designing their multiple websites, and end-to-end revamping publishing and editorial processes for their magazines and promotional media, I developed a conference website engine to simplify future website generation.
