Phase2 Developer RJ has been working on the LAMP stack for over 6 years. His interest in real-time interaction on the web has pushed him to leverage his JavaScript skills to bring new functionalities to Drupal, and he is exploring additional avenues all the time.


Before joining the team at Phase2, RJ worked as a Senior Developer at a public relations firm in Washington D.C. where he provided technical oversight, and developed custom web applications and CRM integrations for clients in industries ranging from cyber-security to sovereign nations.


From an early age, RJ has had a natural affinity towards systems building. Sparked in childhood by playing with LEGO sets, progressing to wiring together various audio systems as a young boy, and eventually studying electrical engineering in high school, his desire to understand, design and create elegant systems is the primary force that led him to pursue a career as a developer.


RJ holds a B.S. in Computer Technology and an Associate of Business from Kent State University.
