I am a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native and have been building web applications since 1999.

I hold a B.S. degree in Computing & Information Science-Saint Vincent College (Latrobe Pennsylvania)--the majority of my career has centered around full stack web application development in the United States and most recently, in Europe. 

My current development uses the Laravel 4.x PHP Framework on Ubuntu Linux. My latest passion is the using TDD within the agile methodology.

I am conference speaker at events such as phpDay 2014 and PHP UK 2015

My research work includes biomedical informatics and machine translation and I am a co-author in several peer reviewed publications. I contribute to open source projects whenever possible.
