Ethan Stiffelman was born and currently lives in Los Angeles California. He is always practicing all things 'tech'; from front end web development with HTML and CSS, to back end systems architecture and databases. On the back end he prefers to work with the Rails Framework, Ruby Language, PostrgeSQL, and MongoDB. For the front end, he prefers Bootstrap, jQuery, and Foundation. Before his career in development, he was a chef at Melisse Restaurant in Santa Monica where he worked for two years. When he's not working with computers, his hands will be dirty building aftermarket engines and racing anything with a motor.
