Hi, my name is Marcus and I am a self-employed software engineer living and working remotely in Richmond, VA. I grew up in a small farm town known as Meadows of Dan and graduated from Virginia Tech with a dual degree in entrepreneurial management and marketing. I'm a self-taught developer and have been coding for over six years.
I am currently contracting at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) as a lead application developer architecting a fintech platform containing multiple SaaS solutions surrounding financial crime. I build my own products on the side (maybe you've heard of Guess the Throne) and have started to blog full of helpful things I’ve learned over the years to share what I’ve learned. I also speak at a variety of events to support the ever-growing tech community.
When I'm not coding, I'm in nature exploring, hiking, fishing, or biking.
I've started to speak more and give back to the community. I like speaking on application architecture, design patterns, and the JAM stack.
A in-depth exploration of monorepos using Lerna and Yarn. Learn what they are, how they work, and the pitfalls you may face while adopting one.
An overview of the JAM stack for beginners using Gatsby and Netlify. The talk is 100% in the editor walking through how to bootstrap your application, add a blog, and deploy all within 15 minutes.
You can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss an idea, book a speaking engagement, ask questions about a coding problem, or just connect!
