About me

Hi there! Throughout my previous professional endeavors in real estate operations, marketing, and various customer-facing service industry roles, I’ve found that my passions lie in process improvement, clean design and aesthetic, and creative problem-solving. Software development never ceases to challenge or inspire me in any of these areas.

I am always interested in learning new technologies and languages to build robust, efficient products that exceed expectations for functionality and user experience. I thrive in an inclusive environment that upholds authentic, empathetic, and socially responsible practices and I am eager to work with a company that aligns with these values.

When I'm not pushing up code, you can most likely find me outside with my schnauzer, searching for the best burrito in town, or geeking out on home design & vintage finds.

This is an application made by devs, for devs! OnlyDevs provides a way for developers to challenge their knowledge, while also being able to study through the contributions of others' answers.

It's a study app that allows Devs to answer 50+ common front-end developer questions. They can also shuffle the question, search question by keyword, and upvote and downvote answers.

The client-side was built with React, React Hooks, and Router. The goal of this project was to self-teach a new technology while building off our foundations. In one week, our team of three taught ourselves PostgreSQL to create our database, with an Express API, and host the backend on Heroku.

Perhaps you've been invited on a date with a musician, or you've found yourself at a party of hipsters who love to chat music, or maybe you just want to find a new genre or two. Well, friend, you're in luck... the*scene* takes the effort out of sounding hip in the music scene and kicks off the conversation for you.

The goal was to build an application for a niche audience using React, React Router, a third party API, and Cypress.
