Why you would want to hire me:

You can use an above average, versatile, self-directed application developer.

I have good taste (I almost always come up with a reasonable architecture, and rarely under or over engineer).

My github has some terrible older code that you can look at, so you know I have at least some skill.

I'm easy to work with.

Most of the time, I write tests first.

All of my estimates are guaranteed to be accurate within +/- three orders of magnitude. I usually give estimates with best, likely and worst case times, which helps.

What I want from an employer:

Profitable or well-funded company that has a useful product or service, and lots of interesting problems to solve.

Ideal company size is 20 to 150 people.

I want the majority of my work to be some combination of Ruby, Python and JavaScript (or similar languages).

Allowed to contribute code (at least code that isn't core business logic) to open source projects.

A mix of back end and front end work. I would like to do more UI development using JQuery, Backbone or similar JS frameworks.

King or Pierce counties of Washington state. If you want me to relocate, you'll have to pay very very well.
