My name is Brad and I love learning new things!
I am an engineer, hacker, and traveler currently working out of the OH-WV-KY metro area.
What I Do
I am a Full Stack Developer who has both contributed to and even led development on a diverse set of software projects in various domains such as:
- Insurance (Health, Auto, Homeowners, and more)
- Human Resources
- Public Utilities
- Back-end / Desktop / Mobile – C# (.NET core, ASP.NET MVC, WPF, Xamarin)
- Databases – SQL Server, PostgreSQL, MongoDB
- DevOps – Cloud computing (AWS), Automation (Python, Powershell, TeamCity)
- Testing – BDD + Xunit
Being a Full Stack Developer I have often had to step outside of my typical comfort zone and completed or contributed to projects in many other languages and frameworks. Quickly learning and applying new things is my specialty.
I’ve also performed DevOps tasks such as setting up automated build servers, continuous integration / deployment pipelines, and the automation of basically any automatable task to save thousands of man-hours of work.
I graduated from Marshall University with a B.S. in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics as well as a 4.0 in-major GPA.
While at college, I was accepted into the WV Governor’s Internship Program to work with the developers at the WV State Tax Department.
Upon the conclusion of my internship, I was contracted to single-handedly develop an online filing web application that tobacco wholesalers have used to collect $107 million in tax dollars in the year 2013 alone.
Once my contract was done, I jumped on board a C2C contracting company and built web, mobile, and desktop apps using all sorts of languages and frameworks.
I am currently working remotely full time with a geographically-sparse team on a SaaS web app that is widely adopted within the insurance industry.
Since I work as a 100% remote developer I use my location independence to my advantage and exercise my freedom to travel.
I’ve been powerlifting in a home gym that I built in my garage and eat healthy to counteract my many hours of staring at screens.
I hang out on Stack Overflow and /r/learnprogramming to share my knowledge and learn more at the same time.
I play and teach guitar… though lately I haven’t had much time to do so.
