About Hackery, Conference Speaking and BigData

PDF Download Resumé

Hi, I'm Jean. I started programming 15 years ago (back when 56kbps was all the rage). I'm extremely enthusiastic about turning data into bits, and bits into dynamically eye-melting graphics.

In the past 8 years I've had multiple opportunities to lead multidisciplinary development teams to successfully deliver production-ready products built using a wide variety of technologies.

I'm passionate about:

GraphQL Logo

AWS Logo

KuneUI Logo

  • NodeJS
  • MongoDB
  • Ruby
  • Rails
  • MeteorJS
  • HBase

"How passionate?" You ask. I continually and profusely profess my professional fondness of these technologies through the age-old art of Conference Speaking. So, be sure to drop me a line if you're looking for someone to spruce-up your conference or meetup with blatantly geeky data-jargon.

In recap, I program and I do it phenomenally well, I talk publicly about it too, and I have a website.

Have yourself a wonderful day!
