Hi, I'm Ted.

Software Engineer.

I love writing code and helping others with technology.

I've been a tech geek since I was a kid. In Middle School, I taught myself C++ and have never looked back. Since high school, I've worked on a number of coding projects for fun and for profit.

I'm now working at LinkedIn as a Software Engineer, with a focus on UI / Web Development. I spend a significant amount of time learning about backend technologies, microservices, and machine learning. I plan to transition to a backend/infra position soon, once I've learned as much as I can about Front End.

I am not available for hire at the moment, however I am always open to interesting project proposals, and have left this site up as it was when I was applying for jobs most recently.
