About me

Hi, I'm Sean. I'm a Ruby on Rails developer from Apex, North Carolina. I'm the founder and only employee of Shiro Labs and currently employed fulltime at SpeedDigital.

I see programming as a craft, and like any serious craftsman, I dedicate as much time as I am able to make sure that I'm up to date on modern best practices of software development. I'm a big proponent of OOP and TDD where applicable, and I value a streamlined development environment that lets me concentrate on writing well tested, clean, and maintainable code.

I've been programming in Ruby and Rails now for years and have recently been dabbling in Clojure and Elixir. When I'm not programming, I can usually be found listening to music while gulping down unhealthy amounts of coffee.
