I began programming in 2001 and began getting involved in live production media (audio, lighting, video) in 2010. Since then I have made a career out of those professions. One of my passions is solving problems and enabling others to operate with excellence. This has taken me quite a few places and afforded me a plethora of opportunitites and experiences. The convergence of these realms/technologies is where I'm headed and what I'm the most excited about.
I am a Senior Full-Stack Software Engineer specializing in the development of complex web applications. I primarily work within the LAMP stack of technologies but often utilize whatever technology is needed. This includes Nginx, Python, and Redis when discussing back-end technologies and includes ES6, Typescript, jQuery, and Angular for front-end technologies. I have a broad range of experience that comes with valuable perspectives in application development.
I have been designing, installing, and running AVL (audio, video, and lighting) systems for several years. My primary expertise is in audio. I have been a musician for my entire life and play a handful of instruments. This has given me a head start in learning to mix professional level live events. I have had the opportunity to mix in a room with a several hundred person capacity on a weekly basis for the past several years. One of my favorite opportunities has been the ability to work with and mix the Grammy nominated band Leeland in a live setting. I've also had the opportunity to design and install complete media solutions (AVL) on more than one occasion. In addition to those things, I also train teams and volunteers in all areas of live media production.
In 2017 I launched my company Meros which is the manifestation of my two professional passions colliding. Our mission is to equip people and organizations with efficient, affordable, and flexible products. I love technology, music, and live production. One of my personal strengths is the ability to quickly and intuitively obtain mental models of complex systems. This allows me to very easily see the big picture which when combined with my technical and detail-oriented skills allows me to affect change on a large scale while transforming the environment that I'm in. I'm incredibly passionate about the mission and vision of Meros and am incredibly excited about the future.
