hi. i'm corey watts.

My name is Corey Watts and I'm a Software Engineer with Alexa Internet, located in lovely San Francisco, California . I have a passion for computers and crafting beautiful web applications. I graduated from Westmont College with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2011 and I've working as a software engineer ever since.

Vim and GNU/Linux are my goto tools. I mostly work in PHP, Javascript, and SQL, but I also have experience and skills in many other languages and tools. I've recently been experimenting with AngularJS and NodeJS and I've enjoyed using them.

My professors at Westmont ingrained in me a passion for elegant solutions, so in every piece of code I write I try to make it as simple and effective as possible. I truly believe that it's the little details that make or break a project, so I strive to get every part right.

In addition to being a software engineer, I have some significant experience in the system administration world. I worked as a Linux System Administrator for a year and a half back in college, and I enjoy occasionally setting up or working on servers.

In my free time, I enjoy learning about and wearing watches, appreciating Scotch Whiskies, lifting weights, and traveling. You can read more about these things at my blog.
