Hi, I'm Zac

Developer

I'm an associate director of software engineering with 13+ years of experience in delivering value and providing innovative solutions across many industries. My experience is primarily in the Microsoft ecosystem where I've spent the majority of my career focused on full-stack web development utilizing C#, ASP.NET, various JavaScript frameworks (including Angular and Vue), Razor, SQL and Entity Framework. I've also worked as a mobile application developer and enjoy hacking on swift and iOS applications in my spare time. No matter what titles I've held throughout my career, I've always considered myself a developer. At the end of the day, I'm passionate about code, mentoring and leading software engineering teams to deliver the best possible solutions for clients. 


Photographer

I'm an amateur photographer who is passionate about landscape and black & white photography. As good as iPhone cameras are nowadays, my go-to gear is still a Canon EOS R with the RF 24-105mm f4 lens. I previously had a side-gig as a real estate photographer, but now my passion lies in traveling to new places and capturing the natural beauty of Americas rugged landscape, especially in our National parks. This is one of my favorite shots taken at Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park. 


Geek

In general, I'm a self-proclaimed geek and all around Apple fan-boy. I have been fascinated by technology for as long as I can remember. The oldest computer I own is a 512k Fat Mac and my daily driver is an M1 MacBook Pro. I regularly enjoy throwing code on side projects ranging from iOS apps to dotnet core web apps, like the one powering this site and my blog. My favorite editor is vs code and I love writing dotnet core apps on macOS. I also consider myself a lifelong learner and take advantage of every opportunity to learn new things.
