About me

Over my educational journey, I have progressively gravitated to software development. In that time, I've discovered that I excel in careers where I am challenged mentally and creatively. When I am working with a diverse group, focused on a common goal, I find that I enjoy the opportunities for growth while also being able to share my knowledge.
