About me

I have a varied work history, including touring the US as a professional musician, and most recently I was the director of cultivation for an award winning dispensary in Denver, CO. I am very passionate about embarking on a new career path as a software developer. Collaboration, problem solving, and learning new technology and languages are my favorite aspects of software development. It is a goal of mine to eventually become a full stack developer that can provide a wide array of solutions whether they be for front end or back end projects. I am eager to cut my teeth on new projects and offer my experience and skillset to my future employer.

Urban Native is an application where users can select different crops to keep track of when planting a garden, and access details on how to grow those specific crops in the unique climate of the front range in Colorado. For this project, my partners and I were able to choose some new technology to learn, so we built our own API and database to consume and hosted it on Heroku.
