Developer. Writer. Nerd.
My name is Jared. Born in New Jersey; raised in Philadelphia, Tallahassee, and Mississippi; and educated in Louisiana, California, and Texas. I’ve had around 25 different mailing addresses and I’m looking for my next (hopefully more permanent) one now. I finished a three month web development bootcamp at The Iron Yard Academy and am currently working on freelance development projects.
My site is a work in progress, so feel free to poke around. I’d love to hear from you if you’re looking for some help building an app or website, or if your team wants someone who loves working with people as much as writing code, and who excels at useless trivia and 30 Rock or Office Space quotes (please note that said quotes do NOT fall under the heading of “useless trivia”). You can email me, read some more words I wrote or just go back to the wonderful carnival of awesomeness that is whatever you were looking at before you came here (but I hope you email me or read my blog, haha).

My education and experience.

As an Account Executive, audited contracts/invoices in the transportation and oil & gas industries to provide funding on a daily basis. Worked with team in Accounts Receivable capacity, posting and matching payments daily from hundreds of different payors.
