Hello! I'm Jay

I'm a full-stack software engineer based in Brooklyn, NY with extensive experience in both JavaScript and Ruby, and I'm also proficient in TypeScript and Go.

I am an engineer with strong business context and high customer empathy, having worked on the business side of several tech startups in the areas of e-commerce, predictive analytics, and performance marketing. I have partnered with industry-leading clients and learned from very talented product and engineering leaders.

Most recently, I created Arbiter, an open-source, cloud-native framework that seamlessly integrates video conferencing into existing web applications
