About me

Whether I was working on a multi-million dollar construction site or as a 911 dispatch supervisor, I have always been team oriented and community driven. These high stress and high reward situations are where my collected, empathetic, and driven personality traits thrive. Programming is a tool that allows me to work in close knit teams and affect change on a much larger scale than ever before.
