Summary

I’m a full-stack web developer driven to create functional, elegant applications, always keeping the end user in mind. It is exciting to be able to create a useful, beneficial product from a spark of an idea and a block of code. I have a passion for learning and problem solving and am always looking for new challenges to improve my coding skills. I am also a bit of a beer geek who loves live music, so if I’m not improving upon a past project or creating a new one, you might find me at a tasting event or enjoying a local show.
