My StackOverflow CV

Ceramic collector, obsessive cook, entrepreneur and professional geek.

I was doing a one-person consultancy for a couple of years, doing some Rails stuff, some .Net services work, and some work in Groovy/Java for a pharmaceutical firm called Dendreon. When that project wrapped up, I took a Rails-focused job at a hybrid Ruby/C# shop, Getty Images.

I'm interested in functional languages like Scala and F# but have relatively limited real-world experience with them.

In previous lives, I've worked for Microsoft, Revenue Science (now Audience Science), Zillow, and a travel company called Virtuoso, the Seattle Times, and a very strange financial/transportation conglomerate.

My long term professional ambition is to find a way to work from Tokyo/Kawasaki/Yokohama either 100% or via frequent travel or remote work opportunities. If you're interested in tracking down a reasonably competent Rails or ASP.net MVC guy and are located near Seattle, WA or Tokyo, Japan or don't mind me working mostly remotely, feel free to contact me.

comment Should I buy the Suica & N'EX package to go from Narita to Tokyo?
The other advantage of the Suica card is that it saves you a lot of fumbling around getting on and off the train, as you usually won't need to stop to do fare adjustments or fumble with which part of your wallet you left your ticket stub in, thanks to the proximity swipe feature of the Suica. Also, it will come in handy for the times that your JR pass doesn't help you, like when you take the subway or one of the non-JR lines. (Yu can also read your trip history/balance on some Android phones with NFC and an appropriate app). If you can get a package deal with extra credit, so much the better.
