About me

Ruby, Rails, Javascript, Databases and everything in between. Just your average 30 something year old livin' in the beautiful BC mountains.

Full stack developer with a dream of making it big in the IT sector. I've made my way through a few programming languages, and taught myself the ins and outs of networking and troubleshooting. I'm well versed in the tenets of programming and I can walk the CLI's of most OS without a hitch.

I have been heavily focused on React and Javascript lately, though I'm constantly refreshing and learning new things in all the areas that interest me. Shattered Design is the name I started with many years ago when I was making my way in the marketing world, and this site is a smattering of projects (in various states of disrepair) written in Ruby and Javascript with various backends and deployments, as well as guides and blogs about things I'm currently doing or working on.
