Hey, I'm Brad, a husband, dad, javascripter and enjoyer of peanut butter sandwiches (preferably with honey and raisins).


As a programmer, I primarily write javascript. I <3 it. Function scoped hugs and object literal kisses for everyone! I write mostly for the browser but I also have plenty of experience on the other side of the pipe.


Ah, the beautiful substrate of the web(!). Finding more semantically correct ways to express content is a constantly evolving task for which I seem to have no lack of enthusiasm. I'm certainly into the new shiny HTML5 niceties, but sometimes things should just be simple. I'm ok with that and I actually think it's pretty great sometimes.

Css ✻

Other than javascript, Writing cross browser style sheets is probably where I have the most experience. I've dealt with peekaboo bugs, IE hacks, and replaced table layouts with huge amounts of divs *cough*.

Open Source

Among others, I am a frequent contributor to the Backbone and Underscore projects.


I received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from The University of South Carolina on May 11th, 2007.


If you would like to contact me about a job (or just shoot the breeze) please email dunbarb2 at gmail dot com. I am available for contract and freelance work on a case by case basis.

You can also check me out on twitter, github, or irc.

This document is by no means exhaustive but I will be glad to furnish answers for any questions you may have about my qualifications, experience, and/or general demeanor.


I am permanently located in Lexington, South Carolina, where I will accept only positions that I can handle sans pants.

Work Experience

I've been working as a full time programmer since graduating in 2007. I've worked with many great people and fun projects and they just get better and better!

FrontEnd Developer

Harvest Oct 2014 - Present

These days I'm applying my skills to time tracking and invoicing. The team at Harvest is kind, professional, and very good at what they do. I'm struggling a bit to keep up but I think things are starting to even out!

I feel as though I've swapped jobs enough at this point and I hope to hang my hat at Harvest for a long time to come.

FrontEnd Engineer

Pathable Jun 2011 - Oct 2014

At Pathable, I hacked to create a community and social network for conferences and events through coffeescript. I also enjoyed the opportunity to dig into ruby and rails, something I'd wanted to do for a long while.

It was by far the best environment for writing code I'd ever worked in. The people I worked with were very talented and it barely felt like work at all.

Senior Developer

General Information Systems Nov 2010 - Jun 2011

I helped to streamline a rather large javascript codebase, along with a good helping of backend development using an MVC paradigm. I also helped out other developers who didn't have much experience writing javascript.

Lead Developer

CGM Computer Consulting Oct 2008 - Nov 2010

As the primary developer, I created a custom CMS for the Basic Combat Training unit at Fort Jackson SC. Since I was the only developer, I learned a great deal about cleaning up my own messes and just making things work.

Web Developer

Seibels Insurance Sep 2007 - Oct 2008

While working at Seibels, I found new languages and refined my understanding of javascript. I also met lots of friendly people and shipped a bunch of code.

Web Developer

SCANA Services Mar 2006 - Sep 2007

As an intern, and later a full time employee, I did a great deal of reading and learning. My primary realization was that going to school had given me approximately 1% of the knowledge I would need to be a successful programmer.
