Professional Bio

I've never wanted to stop learning, and that's what I love about being a software developer: regularly picking up new technologies and keeping up with the latest trends is imperative. I've applied my expertise and also acquired new skills in order to build software for clients in fashion, fitness, and agriculture. I admire JavaScript for its near universal applicability and its functional paradigm. When I'm not learning new skills, I love to stay in shape and exercise.
