Professional Bio

Even though I began my engineering career with an interest in robotics, I fell in love with software and the limitlessness of its potential. In the world of software, I'm bound by nothing by my imagination. I'm a curious, passionate autodidact, and I've helped clients in mining, telecommunications, health care, and more. I enjoy writing code in Ruby and JavaScript for their ability to create seemingly anything. When I'm not programming, I love gaming, and watching films and TV.
