I'm a self-taught software engineer with a focus on JavaScript, React, Redux Node.js, and functional programming.

I enjoy experiementing with API's as much as I like thinking through user experiences. I've worked in tech for the last six years, previously in product and customer success roles.

I enjoy chaos and I'm not typically one for sticking to the status quo. If I see something that needs to get done, I do it. If I find something I want to learn, I go learn it.

I'm most interested in working on web apps, design systems, and framework technologies.
