I'm a software developer with more than a decade of professional experience in a variety of industries. I've spent the majority of my career on database-backed Java-based web applications, including the unavoidable ancillary languages/technologies/markups: JavaScript (including jQuery), CSS, HTML5, SQL, XML, *nix shell scripting, and so on.

Beginning in 2015, the company I work for has been building a wholesale replacement for our legacy monolithic J2EE applications. We're using Cassandra, Kafka, and Angular, and building a suite of Java-based "microservices", with goals of increased scalability and reliability among other advantages. I'm the technical lead on the team responsible for Kafka and several of our microservices.

I also have real (professional) experience developing in PHP, pre-.NET Visual Basic, and Pascal (via Borland Delphi), but it's been years, so I'm not sure how much I trust my memory. :)

I have more casual, limited exposure to C/C++/ObjC and a variety of other languages, but I haven't spent any time developing with those professionally.

Outside of my work experience: as of this writing, I'm 36, married 12 years, with a beautiful and hilarious two-and-a-half-year-old daughter. I'm a huge nerd with a thing for fast cars, alpine ski racing, home theater, and taking pictures of my daughter. I dream of someday having the financial wherewithal and scheduling flexibility to pursue these interests more seriously. For now, I dabble and speculate.
