Hi there! I’m Jake. 👋
I am an Army veteran, self-taught programmer, and consultant working remotely at Hashrocket in Chicago.
I strive to be reliable, positive, systematic, a great listener and problem solver. My teammates would describe me as an expert communicator, methodical and rigorous, but also fun and empathetic in writing and conversation. I’m an inquisitive person who learns in public— I level up quickly, and bring those around me along for the ride.
Check out my blog to explore my writing, now to see what I’m currently jazzed about, and my projects, talks, and profiles below. I’m most proud of my volunteer work at Code Platoon, presenting at RailsConf 2017, and building Today I Learned, a popular blog that’s the number-one referrer of traffic to my company website.
Thanks for stopping by!
