Experience

20+ years experience building web applications

Given a problem in my own life, I'd resort to building myself a web app to fix it. From budgeting software to time management solutions, I've built a lot of apps.

My professional career started on a team consulting on how to build a UI for an online voting platform. I went to law school and started a legal career where I built web applications for managing my law school work load, and tracking my hours as a paralegal.

Despite a successful career as a lawyer (being named one of the **top 5%** of rising lawyers for **three years**), I transitioned to my passion: web technologies.

TimeBrewer

I joined a startup doing Internet marketing, and took my existing time management platform and developed it into a full featured product/time/payroll/lead management solution.

ClickFrauds

I also built a solution for tracking advertising fraud and blocking malicious traffic.

Open Source

I have always been a proponent of Open Source and the Free Software community. I recently garnered the courage to begin releasing a variety of tools I have built for myself over the years to the open world hoping that somehow they will be useful to more than just me. I invite you to take a look at, for example, PorterJS.
