I graduated from Southeast Missouri State University with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. I focus on web development, and I have a passion for using technology to help people - to save time, to be more productive, to be more efficient, and to enjoy their jobs and lives more.
Currently, I work as a Web Developer at Vintage Software in Jackson, MO. I primarily work on developing EstateSales.NET, the largest estate sales network, and AntiqueMalls.com. Our tagline is software that stands the test of time, and we really try to live by that. One of the most enjoyable things about my job is always striving to improve. I am most proud of my contributions to the design and implementation of a web application framework that we have named "vstack" (released open source on GitHub).
Previously, I worked at MedAssets as a Web Developer and at Southeast Missouri State University as a Software/Web Developer, in a technical support role and as a Teacher's Assistant.
At MedAssets, I did various web development tasks including developing internal reporting tools and enhancing client-facing applications. I developed a dashboard application that displayed various Google Analytics and server status data in easy to view charts and a a socket io web application that recorded and displayed data in real time.
At Southeast Missouri State Missouri, I worked for three departments in software/web development and technical support roles as well as filling a Teacher's Assistant role. I was instrumental in the university's transition from our home-grown Learning Management System (LMS) to Moodle (an open-source LMS). During that time, I wrote several tools to ease the transition for faculty including a tool to convert test banks which saved hundreds of hours of tedious manual work. As a Teacher's Assistant, I helped students learn to program in their lab assignments.
