<About />

Software Developer, Social Media Enthusiast

I’m a full-stack software developer and a tech educator. I'm passionate about automation, conventions, privacy, and security. I build applications in JavaScript, Ruby, and Python. I currently have the really cool job of teaching other people how to code at General Assembly's Web Development Immersive program. Before that, I taught web development with the DC Youth Corps, and visual programming with Code4Life.

I'm also a social media enthusiast. I currently lead a team of social media volunteers at PCC4Refugees, where we advocate on behalf of refugees in the United States. I'm also a member of the Advisory Council of AsylumConnect, where I advise the organization on social media strategy. Previously, I've contributed to several social media campiagns and Search Engine Optimization projects for Fission Strategy and Loebig Ink.

I care about free speech, freedom of information, the human right to communication, online privacy, open source, tech education, diversity in tech, digital censorship, and Internet neutrality.

When I'm not working, you can find me hosting dinner parties, practicing nature photography, competing on CodeWars (where I appear on its leaderboard), and listening to Reggaeton.

Let’s build awesome apps together!

Mike is a dynamo - an incisive genius whose strategic vision helped accelerate many of our projects across a wide array of issues such as immigration reform, the environment, education, human rights, humanitarian foundation support and more. He's a quick study for any topic or tech and can seemingly become an expert overnight. I'd recommend him to any team looking to enhance their success.

Mike consistently impressed and inspired me with his focus and ability to ask rapid-fire, incisive questions about technologies covered during the course. He quickly identifies the limits of his knowledge and works meticulously to advance them. I felt truly privileged to teach a student with such vision and tenacity.

Mike was one of my students for General Assembly's Web Development Immersive program. During the course, Mike was a very hard-working, driven, and detail-oriented student. Additionally, Mike was a fast learner and always displayed a willingness to teach and help others as well. Mike would be a great asset to any firm's development team.

Mike was a pleasure to work with. He's a quick, inquisitive learner and proved to be especially talented in Ruby on Rails. Mike was very passionate about his web development education. He pushed himself on his assignments, often going beyond the requirements and tackling more challenging bonus features. He also asked insightful questions and provided thoughtful answers in the classroom.

Mike is a strategic thinker, productive do-er, and problem solver extraordinaire. He always has great ideas for what can be done better, and excellent follow through with getting those things done! He does an outstanding job addressing concerns in detail with compelling stats, and thinks through the best recommendations to make. His proactive drive in pushing projects forward makes for great collaboration and teamwork.

Mike was an integral part of the AsylumConnect team as our dedicated Social Media Manager. In this role, he drastically improved AsylumConnect’s multi-platform social media presence by increasing both our followings and level of engagement. He reliably crafted informative, timely, and engaging content. He was always responsive, insightful, and willing to offer suggestions to improve our social media performance.
