Hello!

Background

I'm currently an Associate Software Engineer at Hellosaurus developing software tools for creators of high-quality kids programming. Previously, I did a software engineering internship at Moogsoft where I wrangled JavaScript charting libraries and helped to optimize web app bundling and build performance. I'm also a graduate of the YC-backed coding bootcamp, Lambda School, where I studied Full Stack Web Development.

As a software engineer, I strive to develop applications that are both efficient and user-friendly. My drive for coding comes from knowing I've built well-designed products that users will love to use and recommend to their friends and families.

When I'm not in front of a computer screen, I'm probably hanging out with my girlfriend, riding around the Bay Area on my road bike, sitting out in the sun with my dog, or writing about whatever is on my mind at the moment.
