About me

I've been helping people on a micro-level for the past five years:

Navigating healthcare and housing for recent immigrants in Boston.
Visiting patients with Hansen's disease (leprosy) in Ecuador.
Serving 100+ people daily as a Trader Joe's crew member in Boulder, CO.

I've chosen software development to be able to impact the world on a macro-level.

I'm a frontend developer working towards being full-stack.
I'm a team player with a passion for getting a bit better every day.
I'm a calming force, an empathetic designer and listener, and a creative problem-solver.
I want to work in civic tech or an adjacent industry doing work I think is valuable and making a positive impact on the world and people's lives.
