About me

A little bit about me.

Experienced industrial machine programmer turned backend web developer with a strong background in Ruby on Rails. Skilled in Python, SQL, HTML, CSS, and more. Passionate about test-driven development and maintaining clean, readable code. Proven track record in remote work and effective collaboration. Ready to leverage my diverse skill set to make an immediate impact on your team.

My passion for Software Development began after a ten-year career as an industrial and home automation engineer where I sharpened my troubleshooting skills and honed my ability to design robust systems, primarily through programming PLCs.

The COVID-19 pandemic underscored the importance of having a career that could be pursued universally, transferred across industries, and executed remotely. With this in mind, I recognized a unique opportunity to transition into Software Engineering. I completed several certification courses before ultimately enrolling full-time at The Turing School of Software & Design. After graduating, I decided to further my education by pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science at Colorado State University Global.

I couldn't be more excited to embark on this new path, refine my skills, and continue building innovative solutions.
