About me

Hello, I’m Devin, a software developer who cares deeply about human-centered design and accessibility.

I spent 10 years working in media production within digital agencies and as a freelancer. The advertising industry instilled in me a keen understanding of the end-user perspective throughout the customer experience journey. As a senior video editor, I learned to forge strong partnerships with internal stakeholders and clients alike, continuously incorporating their feedback in a process of iterative refinement.

Working across disciplines with designers and developers on digital products for established brands and start-ups ignited my interest in software development. My background as an exhaustive researcher, love of precision, and experience in creative problem-solving have drawn me to this exciting career path.

I bring a blend of curiosity, critical thinking, and strong interpersonal communication skills to building software within a team environment. Contributing to a company that prioritizes digital accessibility resonates with my goal of helping people navigate the online world more easily by eliminating friction points in their experience.
