The Official Rap Sheet


I am seasoned in many aspects of software development from web-scale architecture to neural networks to tech leadership and can go from writing simple, clean and easily maintainable back-ends to welding onto the languages runtime in c++ if required. I have been progamming since 8 years old and shipped my first product (a fully featured video game) at 14. I feel most fulfilled when I am involved in solving complex problems and being able to devise simple and scalable solutions to them. I also thoroughly enjoy managing and developing people and have lead many projects and teams to success.
