Yay black box debugging. I like to have an operating system that exposes the controlling layers for my glorious investigation purposes.

Nullable booleans, for those times when true/false isn't quite enough to represent application state. #lol #tribool

+Jerry Ellis I have seen it used several ways, most recently as a search criteria data point filter. Where you can signify "include" (null) the default, "only" (true) or "exclude" (false). It's a compact way to represent that information, though not the most intuitive way.

Over 500,000,000 Yahoo accounts have been breached by hackers. Time for a password checkup. Remember: Friends don't let friends share passwords between accounts!

The Winds of Fate

One ship drives east and another drives west
With the selfsame winds that blow.
’Tis the set of the sails
And not of the gales
Which tells us the way to go.

Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate,
As we voyage along through life;
’Tis the set of a soul
That decides its goal,
And not the calm or the strife.

— Ella Wheeler Wilcox

  • CoStar Group
    Senior Software Engineer, 2012 - present
    Right now I'm working on architecting a complete rewrite of the LoopNet website using ASP.NET MVC, Unity, OWIN, Entity Framework, Angular, SignalR, WebSockets and SASS, with a strong focus on testability, built on a foundation of SaaS / Microservices using a modular component-based architecture. Recently, I researched available adaptive bitrate streaming protocols including HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) and Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS). Then I architected and implemented the video virtual tour service used by,,, and hundreds of other websites. This responsive video-on-demand SaaS product features innovative time-based interactive media, floorplan walkthroughs, and optimized playback for desktop, tablet and mobile devices. The service also provides customizable layout and embedding options, theming/branding support, dynamic chapter navigation and rich interaction analytics. All this with an initial download of just 4KB that renders in less than 5 milliseconds.
  • Manning Publications
    Technical Proofer, 2015 - 2015
    I have collaborated with Manning Publications on several book titles including, technical reviews of "Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja, Second Edition"​ by John Resig, Josip Maras Ph.D., and Bear Bibeault. As well as "Functional Programming in JavaScript" by Luis Atencio. I appreciate an excellent technology book; accordingly​ I carefully ensure the titles I review comprehensively cover the concepts, using code examples that clearly teach the material, while presenting practical solutions to real-world problems.
  • Packt Publishing
    Technical Reviewer, 2015 - 2015
    After turning down authoring a video series on testing Angular.js for Packt Publishing due to previous commitments. I used my expertise in Angular to shape two courses from Packt, one called "Rapid AngularJS Testing"​ (Angular 1.x) and another "Mastering AngularJS"​ (Angular 2.x). While it is ultimately the author's decision about what to include, I did point out areas where to make improvements and gave constructive, helpful feedback on the structure and organization of the video courses. As an integral part of the editorial process, I employed my skill, experience, and knowledge to ensure technical accuracy of the text and quality of the code.
  • Pragmatic Programmers
    Technical Reviewer, 2014 - 2015
    I provided insightful technical reviews of several book titles from The Pragmatic Programmers. These include "CoffeeScript Accelerated JavaScript Development, Second Edition"​ by Trevor Burnham. As well as "Reactive Programming in JavaScript" by Sergi Mansilla. I ensured code accuracy, made suggestions to improve clarity, and contributed detailed comments throughout the books on revising the contents.
  • LoopNet
    Senior Software Engineer, 2004 - 2012
    ☑ Architected a PDF report generation system using isomorphic JavaScript. ☑ Campaigned for a universally accessible mobile version of the LoopNet site and created using CSS3 and HTML5 to optimize the site for mobile devices.
  • LoopNet
    Software Engineer, 2001 - 2004
    Delivering web development, maintenance and enhancement projects using JavaScript, jQuery, C#, Asp.Net, MVC, Dojo Toolkit, as well as SQL and the Entity Framework: ☑ Improved search performance by redesigning property search using AJAX, which enables our users to search quickly and filter more than a half-trillion dollars’ worth of properties for sale. ☑ Designed a front end build process and integrated it into the development lifecycle, which improved code quality and reduced the number of bugs to the quality assurance team. ☑ Improved report generation time by 95% for a project appearing at the International Conference on Software Engineering.
  • PropertyFirst
    Web Developer, 2000 - 2001
    During my tenure at I pioneered innovations in JavaScript now commonly used today, under the name AJAX. I used this asynchronous request method to log client-side validation errors to a database. This enabled management to review high friction points in the site. Armed with this knowledge, they knew precisely where to improve user experience.
