About me

While backpacking through Australia in 2019, I met an array of "nomad" software engineers and became immediately enamored with the work and the opportunities it provided. After returning to the U.S. I began seeking out programs to get involved, and found the Turing School, where I have been able to explore and develop my passion for problem solving. For me, software development is a way to exercise strong collaboration, creativity, and resourcefulness. Heading into this next chapter, I am excited to fully engage myself as a reliable and committed team member in an effort to create accessible and secure user experiences.
