About me

I am a back-end software engineer specializing in Ruby on Rails. I also have experience with Python, CSS3, JavaScript, HTML5, and SQL. I have bachelor's degrees in finance, accounting, and information systems emphasizing project management and cyber security. I have roots in fine dining where I honed specialized customer service skills. Prior to becoming a software engineer, I spent many years in wholesale steel trading utilizing high-level multitasking as well as being a sole proprietor responsible for cradle-to-grave business transactions. I look forward to my dream career in software engineering and contributing my experience, skills, and business tenacity to successfully achieve the goals and the growth of a quality organization. I am dedicated to continuous learning and expanding my knowledge in all software engineering disciplines to ultimately become a successful full-stack engineer.
