About me

Leveraging skills acquired from a solid 12-year-marinade in property management with a new mission in mind: using tech for good. Upon learning a myriad of ways that technology is used to combat human trafficking and child exploitation, my focus has shifted from law-enforcement to joining the behind-the-curtains team. Current adventure sights are set on taking learned skills (thank you Turing) and building upon them through new challenges, projects, and circles. I'm excited to take this deep dive into development, where content to learn is limitless and share wherever I can. Ultimately, my goal is to bring compassion, contributions, and strong desire for change somewhere I can grow with a like-minded team, jump on a continuous wheel of learning, and use my volunteer time for organizations geared towards combating human trafficking.
