I create web applications. These days, I spend most of my time consulting with Ruby on Rails and specialize in helping teams improve their development, testing, and release processes. That’s to say that I help teams who don’t have any tests written improve their test coverage and code quality in an ongoing and sustainable manner.

I've been working on the web since 2000 and dabbling long before that. I built and ran Sifter as a sole founder for eight years before selling it, and I wrote a book about the experience. For the full career and experience back story, You can swing by my site.
