Hello! I'm Alex. I'm a hybrid Mobile app Architect and Consultant located in Portland, Oregon.

I largely work in Ionic and Cordova for a Fortune 100 company - though I dip into a lot of other mobile technologies as well.

Before that I specialized in the full LAMP stack, with a particular eye towards optimizing the performance of PHP applications. I've also done a lot of work profiling the performance of Javascript applications.

Once I spent a good stint of time as a MySQL database administrator, and have done performance profiling and remediation at that level as well.

I've worked on a wide variety of projects, including doing work for Wizards of the Coast, THQ, working with SoundManager, writing some XMPP chat systems (using XEP-0045 MUC specifications), several Drupal 7 projects, maintenance on a Drupal 6 site, MediaWiki installs and other web technologies.

In my spare time, I enjoy table-top RolePlaying games, hacking around various hardware projects, learning languages, and my cats.
