I am a developer who enjoys working in front-end development but also gets a kick out of back-end development.
I’m naturally inquisitive and enjoy figuring out how things work. I have a defined sense of aesthetic and enjoy making thoughtful, engaging, and functional web applications that have a simple, clean and distinct design.
I’ve built web applications using Ruby on Rails, Node.js and React and have a strong foundation in web design and development. I've recently completed Coder Academy’s 6 month web development bootcamp.
Before moving into development, I worked in the Library and Information Management sector, where I produced and managed content.
When I'm not coding, I enjoy spending time with friends, family and my two cats, Willow and Orlando.
