About me

As a goal-oriented initiator, I bring myself forward to direct teams and can be found excitedly implementing new ideas. With a diverse background in customer service, leadership, and project management -- from my time spent at large corporations and small start-ups -- I have ample experience optimizing processes and finding creative solutions to any challenge. I’m an empathetic communicator with seven years of experience synthesizing and integrating user feedback into tangible results. I am excited to bring a fresh perspective and strong interpersonal skills from my previous career and international travels into the software engineering world. I’ve accumulated over 1500 hours of programming experience in JavaScript, React, and test-driven development; I have learned how to best leverage my creative and process-oriented background to become a well-rounded Front-End Software Engineer. I am an honest, innovative, out-of-the-box thinker who brings positive energy to all situations and teams I join.
