Full Stack JavaScript Developer

About Me

I am looking to take the next step in my software career. I have over 12 years of experience in library related information technology of all types including my last 2+ years of software development. In my programming role some of my projects are creating an application to do physical inventory, app to help pre-order items we do not have for reserves, and a project to gather data from various sources to be synthisized into a new faculty profile. My privious library technology work has mainly revolved around integrated library system administration, including Sierra, Millennium, Symphony, and Polaris.

My current tech stack is fullstack JavaScript. If you want to know more about my professional background and skills, please feel free to click on the buttons in the section above and the projects listed below.

When not working with information technology, my interests include all things Michigan sports related, visiting new places, and spending time with my wife Melanie and our 2 rescue kitties.

Why development?

I am often asked why I want to move into software development. There are 2 reasons I want to move into development: 1) I like to build new services & 2) To help people make better decisions.

An example of how these tie together would be when I worked at Tillamook County Library, our ILS, Sierra started shipping with APIs. I wanted to create an application called 'Lost Treasures' of items that for whatever reason had failed to circulate in a given timeframe. Searching could be done by a variety areas such as subject heading and material type. This would give another access point for patrons to browse and a tool for power users to find items they have not seen or used previously.
