About me

Introduced to programming when in high school -- I knew that this would be my path. Programming appealed to me for the same reasons I love school - endless learning and novel problem solving. However, I took a roundabout path through the world of biology and conservation before enrolling in The Turing School of Software Design.

Today I look forward to combining my skills acquired from my biology career and my newly obtained programming skills. Driven to improve, I excel at customer-centered problem-solving, I am committed to continued education and honing my skillset and I take great pride and responsibility in what I do.

You'll find me a reliable, consistent and driven engineer. A solutions focused collaborator, I excel when learning about problems new and old and finding innovative solutions.

When i'm not working you'll find me hiking in the woods or teaching bike mechanics to youth at a local non-profit bike shop.

I invite you to reach out to me here or on Linked In. I will happily share more about myself and how I can best contribute to your mission.

The Nomadic Nibbler is a mobile first food truck application that allows users to set a location and view food trucks in their immediate area. Users can see their location on a map, view a list of available trucks, and get detailed information about each truck. Location can be changed if you have a new destination and the map will update. This app was converted to a progressive web app (PWA) and allows the user download the application to their phone's home screen and access their recent session when offline or the internet is spotty.
