Hi, I'm Josh @ Mixt Meta

I am a self-motivated software engineer with ten years of experience creating complex systems. I am privileged to work on many great products, but the ones I especially enjoy allow me to build large multi-tiered applications from scratch using my core technical strengths of C#, ASP.NET, JavaScript and SQL. I love working with talented, small teams but can also deliver high quality results independently when needed. I study kung fu to stay sharp.
