What I read

I have a 1:1 rule. For every tech related article I read, I have to read 1 non-tech based article. I am interested in always improving as a developer and person in the "tech community". But, I also want to improve as a human. Twitter, friends, blogs ect

Side projects

Currently assisting build a hospitality review application using electron and react.js. I help my mentor with their on-going projects to learn new technologies. Continuing to work on original passion project- a website with custom original content.

Ideal team

I am used to working on lean teams, often times having no more than 4-5 people per project. In the past, we have adapted an agile workflow, with daily morning stand-ups and tracking project milestones. All of this has been done from different time zones.
