A bit more about Seth

I am a developer of stuff & things

I have 10+ years of web-focused software development experience spreading the "full-stack" gamut with php,, and ruby/rails. My passion and expertise lies with front-end development whether it be design work or JavaScript development. I've worked on a wide range of projects, ranging from enterprise level products for the healthcare or document imaging space all the way down to your typical CMS-based website. I enjoy tinkering with the latest and greatest JS framework or CSS architecture.

When I'm not coding, I'm making things, or spending time outdoors backpacking, running or hiking. I also have an awesome shepherd mix named Kona (hover over my picture above to witness his super-saiyan level of awesome).
