I am a professional programmer with a knack and drive for learning new languages. My career goal is versatility, if you need something done I can find and learn the right tool to solve the problem.

My favorite languages are Go, Haskell and Lua. Outside of that, I enjoy many other languages such as: Rust, Java, C#, C++, C, Objective-C, PHP, Python, Ruby, Cg/HLSL/GLSL, Io, Prolog, Elixir, R and the list goes on.

As I've progressed in my career I've shied further away from dynamically typed languages and searched more for a statically typed language, general with compile time guarantees. I've seen large and small codebases crumble under mistakes that would have been easily resolved with static typing in addition to numerous confusing moments digging through files and chains of method calls just to figure out what kind of value some variable holds.
