About me

I'm a creative software developer looking to contribute to elegant code and intuitive design. As a Type 1 Diabetic who's pancreas uses a computer, I know just how deeply software can impact peoples' lives. I'm also a Musician and writer of weird fiction drawn to code as an expressive medium. Ask me why Victor Hugo's Hunchback of Notre Dame is about web applications.
