Work History
April 2019 Present
TaxBit Logo
As employee number 2 at TaxBit, I've helped take the company from two to over 200 employees. From a couple thousand in sales to millions. TaxBit builds cryptocurrency tax and accounting solutions for enterprises, consumers, and the government.

While here, I've headed numerous impactful efforts.
  • I completely rebuilt our frontend app, taking our old Angular 1 MVP and turning it into a scalable, responsive, and modern React web app. And I did that in less than 6 months without ever having written in React in my life.
  • I built our Public facing API from scratch, using AWS serverless services such as Lambda and API Gateway.
My coworkers sometimes like to call me Swiss (short for Swiss Army Knife) because there isn't much I can't tackle.
LearningBridge Inc.

Upon returning from my two year mission in Russia, I found a position as a developer at LearningBridge. LearningBridge runs on Adobe ColdFusion. I had never written in ColdFusion before, so I took the challenge head on, excited to learn a new language.

I was tasked with updating a large portion of the older UI to be responsive. I was also tasked with updating a number of the PDF generators to be much quicker and easier to modify.
Perfect Pitch Tech

When I was just 17 years old and just barely out of High School, a friend put me in contact with Perfect Pitch's CTO and he took a great chance on me and hired me on the spot. I worked on their Django backend, specifically working on a number of endpoints for their API using Django Rest Framework.

I was also tasked with speeding up our server provisioning process using Puppet. I effectively reduced the time it took to provision a new server from many hours to 30 minutes, replacing long running bash scripts, with a fast running puppet configuration.

Volunteer Experience
Church Missionary Service
January 2016 January 2018
I served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for two years in Russia. I served in the beautiful Russian cities of Novosibirsk, Omsk, and Barnaul, but also spend a few days in Tomsk, Novokuznetsk, and Ulan-Ude. I love the Russian people and the Russian language.
