About me

Puzzle-hungry Rubyist on the hunt for mastery. Obsessed with AI, machine learning, art, music & everything tech-creative. I'm armed with a ten year background in retail management and I'm excited and ready to find my home in a tech company contributing positivity to the world!

Entering the world of back-end engineering has led me to great fulfillment in my need for communication, collaboration, challenge, puzzle-solving, and creativity in a way I never thought possible.

My drive to make a positive impact in the world comes through avenues as diverse as social-justice, green energy, accessibility, art, mental health, as well as a genuine desire to cultivate inspiring relationships with every person I meet.
