About me

I am studying software development to fulfill my passion for building communities and providing for their needs.

Building a community can mean many things. As an aspiring civil engineer, it often meant literally building infrastructure that not only addressed the community's current needs but anticipated new demands decades in advance. As a salesperson, it meant being part of a team that supported and motivated each other. As a teacher, it meant making the most of every day by building a collaborative environment where my students could productively struggle together. These experiences have given me the skills necessary to meet the challenge of building for a global community through web applications. Specifically, my unique brand of client needs assessment, applied business logic, and team-building skills will ensure we provide our diverse clientele with context-sensitive solutions.
