I am a freelance software engineer working and living in the United States. The technologies I use are primarily Ruby, Rails, PHP, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Mongoid, and of course HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

I have experience programming in MS technologies such as ASP.NET, C#, VB.NET, SQLServer etc. My overall experience with MS technolgies has been negative and I prefer the opensource alternatives because they give me more flexibility and power without vendor lock-in.

My O/S of choice is Ubuntu Linux & derivatives. I have setup and manage many linux servers for hosting websites, and office file servers.

Currently I am the lead engineer for http://marketpad.com, an online marketplace.

I am a Christian, and will debate with anyone who has an atheist world view.
