I'm a maker and a developer. I produce and ship online and offline products, regularly.
Recently I parted ways with the company that I co-founded, Nightwatch.io. Since then I'm freelancing and taking care of my clients. My specialty is full-stack web development with Ruby on Rails and Ember.js.
Some of my recent personal projects include:
- Name Extractor (a utility that extracts names from text, launched in 2020)
