About me

I'm a borderline autodidact who loves learning new things & experiencing different cultures, and seeing the world. I've been a skilled laborer and social worker and looking to pivot to tech. I've dived into coding and love its inherent logic, discovering new ways to parse information and share it with others. When not working or learning something new, I've had the privilege to produce, direct and perform in live comedy shows. I'd love to have a conversation with you and learn more about your company.
