Built new, and scaled existing, Ruby on Rails apps (CMS, API), deployed with Capistrano and Vagrant, and tested by Rspec.
Relational database design and migrations. Finds enjoyment in running
EXPLAINqueries more than any normal person should.

Introduced and collaborated in agile workflows. Has experience in Scrum and XP, with a personal bias toward Kanban.
