Professional Bio

As a Software Engineer for FullStack Labs, I wield JavaScript and Python to create elegant, performant solutions for our clients. My primary tools for perfecting the user interface are React, React Native, AngularJS, jQuery and vanilla JS. On the backend side I’ve been known to write clean code with NodeJS, Django and Flask. I’m a stickler for proper SDLC practices  such as writing tests to ascertain complete code coverage and documenting and refactoring accordingly. While not mentally engaged in the coding arts, I love to exercise and then relax with some rare vinyls from the early space age.
