Pleased to meet you.

I’m Sean, a full-stack software developer and technology enthusiast.

I am currently a graduate student in Computer Science at Tufts University in Medford, MA.

From 2011-2014 I worked as a full-stack developer at Growth Spark, where I got to wear many hats and work on a variety of interesting projects.

My lifelong passion is building software and using technology to improve lives.

I am an enthusiastic supporter of open-source software.  I’m the author of WP Advanced Search, and was also a core-contributor to the WordPress platform (version 3.9).

I love learning new programming languages, technologies, and workflow tools.  In academia I program mostly in C++, Python and R, but in the “real-world” I have written production code in Java, PHP, Ruby, and JavaScript.  At the end of the day I prefer to be seen as a problem-solver first and a programmer second.

My last name is German and is pronounced boot – zee.

You can also find me on Twitter and GitHub.
