About me

I have great love for helping others, bringing 10 years of experience within disability services and mental health. The work provided a solid foundation for developer empathy, accessibility, and focusing on the user experience.

Software development has quickly become a terrific avenue for working with like-minded people who are continuously motivated to learn new things and overcome obstacles. I look forward to helping teams build products that feel engaging, smooth, and inclusive for their users.

When I'm not coding, I enjoy tabletop gaming, VR, live music, and camping.
