About me

Passionate and dedicated front-end engineer with a hunger to solve challenging/complex problems. Until my transition into tech, I worked in hospitality for ten years. During that time, I found any way I could to optimize my processes. Within a management role, I developed systems for inventory ordering and stock management that maintained peak freshness and highest possible quality while never exceeding a target cost threshold. Within my role as beer sales director, I reinvented the program to match products in our portfolio to clients' needs and increased our sales footprint two hundred fifty percent. I am excited to bring these skills, as well as a new array of tech skills (React, Cypress, Node.js/Express, Knex/PostgreSQL, GraphQL) to new work in the tech sphere, and will always strive for the answer to the problems our development team tries to solve.
