About Me

As Director of Technology, Lead Engineer & Magento Expert at Classy Llama, I have been working full-time with the Community & Enterprise Editions of Magento since early May of 2009. I am also a long-time Mac OS X user, love solving technical challenges of any caliber, enjoy reading, love the outdoors, espresso, chocolate, and coffee! With varying levels of expertise in PHP, C, C++, Bash, JavaScript, AppleScript, HTML and CSS, I plan on someday adding Python and Objective-C to the mix.

I flew out to Magento HQ as a member of the Certification Advisory Board in August of 2011 to work with a team of other brilliant Magento experts to create the highly-aclaimed Magento Developer Certification. Some highlights of my experience with Magento include:

  • Constructing loosely coupled Magento modules to provide extended functionality to end users.
  • Integrating with leading ERP systems to provide order fulfillment, inventory/product synchronization and customer management.
  • Engineering 100% dynamic pricing systems geared specifically for unique business needs.
  • Building custom reports needed for business owners to maintain insight into their sales and profitability.
  • Working directly with clientele to collaboratively design solutions that will meet their business needs long-term.

Fun Fact: My photo is a self-portrait taken while waiting for the special security checkpoint to open at the airport in Madrid, Spain. I was returning from the Magento Developers Paradise held on the Mallorca island in the Mediterranean Sea. Being fairly early in the morning, the sunrise was glorious!
