Professional Bio

I knew from the age of 11 that I wanted to become a software developer. I have always enjoyed the freedom of expression that comes with code and how its possibilities widen with each new advent. I'm relaxed and focused, and I thrive when I'm helping others tackle their ambitions with software, which I've done for clients in marketing, project management, data analytics, and more. I'm partial to Ruby on Rails, but also can appreciate JavaScript with TypeScrpt. I also enjoy playing video games and spending time with my pets.
