hi, I'm Michael Thariath
I'm a full stack developer living in Chicago. I started making websites more than fifteen years ago, in the days of Geocities and Angelfire. I enjoyed it very much until academic and professional responsibilities pulled me away. After school, I worked for a few years until I suddenly found myself in my 20s staying up every night studying web development. That's when I realized that I should embrace my natural inclinations instead of fighting them.
In 2018, after a few years of amateur development, I started programming professionally for the first time, while working for Elexa Consumer Products. I got my first real taste of developing data-driven applications for users at scale, and I've been hooked since!
These days I'm living in Chicago and freelancing while honing my skills on the full stack, front to back. I am actively looking to join a team of creators in a technology company and use my skills to create world-changing applications.
On the softer side, I am not only familiar with scrum and agile methodologies, but I enjoy usingthem to maximize productivity. I enjoy thrive in a fast-paced startup environment, where my nature of being an "expert generalist" is a feature, not a bug.
