Chicago-area full-stack web developer. Working for a variety of small companies, usually as the sole programmer and sysadmin, I do everything from OS installation and configuration to application development, including the server-side and client-side components.
As of late (2013) my preferred environment is Ruby on Rails, which I love for the cleanliness of Ruby syntax and the wealth of community-contributed gems available. Previously I've worked in Java, PHP and Perl, and I continue to maintain applications in those languages.
