Rails development

I'm a software engineer living in Dublin. I do full-stack development and deployment with Ruby on Rails and JavaScript.

About me

My primary expertise is full-stack development and deployment with Ruby on Rails and JavaScript. I have programmed professionally for 10 years, and have 4 years of professional experience with Ruby on Rails.

I hold a Masters in Informatics and Computing Engineering. Currently, I live in Dublin, where I lead the development teams at Gruvi and Áttmatr, two start-ups I co-founded.

At Gruvi, I have developed, and managed the development, of several small- and large-scale web/mobile applications. Last year alone our products handled millions of visitors globally for the likes of Warner Brothers, Sony Pictures International, and Disney. I lead our development process using Scrum and manage developers both locally and in outsourcing positions in Latvia and Portugal.

I am also a great cook.
