About me

As a Back-End Developer, I enjoy the challenging puzzles that I get to solve on a daily basis, as well as creating user and developer-friendly code I have a strong curiosity that drives my interest in new languages and am always looking for a better way to do things. My strongest skills are within communication, organization and process-driven programming as well as testing. I am looking forward to a long career in engineering where I can continue to learn and problem solve on a daily basis.
