About

I am a happily married geeky guy, born into a big Irish-American clan from Boston, MA and now enjoying life in Southern California with my wife and son.

I am a passionate and self-motivated programmer and engineer with more than 20 years of experience , configuring, provisioning, testing and automating a variety of systems and software.

I am currently employed by CrowdStrike.com and use Python, JavaScript to build automated test frameworks that support Continuous Integration of a SaaS based security product.

I was formerly employed by Gravity.com and used PHP, JavaScript/AJAX/jQuery/AngularJS, MySQL, Redis daily to develop new features and maintain two Zend Framework-based analytics products: Gravity Analytics.

I created an open source project called HighRoller.io. It’s an object-oriented PHP wrapper for the popular Highcharts javascript charting library and it’s available on github.

I am a ZCE PHP5 Certified programmer.

I continue to work on technically gratifying projects for products that people want to use every single day.

I am no expert. I do not know what I do not know. I prefer to continue learning and expanding my skill set and experience.

I am a ‘digger’ (i.e. one who digs).
