Professional Bio

There's nothing more satisfying than creating something from nothing, and working in software development lets me see my ideas take shape every day. Over the course of my career I've helped a variety of clients turn concepts into full-featured software applications, with a focus on the health and wellness, project management, and social activism spaces. I enjoy working in Ruby on Rails for the simplicity and intuitiveness of its syntax, among other technologies. When I'm not building new software projects, I love to play video games and soccer, and go to the beach.

Dash is built with Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, HTML, and PostgreSQL.
