Hi, I'm Gray 👋Let's start with a little about who I am
I have the most fun building great products, with great people. To date, working on my own (failed) startups with my cofounder has been the pinnacle of that. I love Ruby and Rails, and find it hard to imagine something else being my “go-to”. But that doesn’t stop me from exploring other technologies.
Professionally, I started out working for the U.S. Navy developing mission planning software using Java and Swing. I learned a lot there, but eventually decided to try my hand at something else.
So I quit. And I spent some time working on my own startups (Rails based, obviously 🛤). Neither was ultimately successful, but I enjoyed the wide array of challenges the startup life brings – both technical and non-technical. I created some amazing software, and had a handful of people think it was amazing, too.
Outside of work, my family (shameless pics) is the most rewarding part of life. I enjoy a great video game. I like mentoring / teaching how to code, and need to try a developer-oriented twitch stream. I should blog more.
