Who I Am

I'm a web-developer who's had a love for technology ever since I first taught myself TI-Basic to get my calculator to do my math homework for me, and have been picking up new skills and tools for most of my life.

It's now years later, and I have a great passion for Ruby, Javascript, and HTML/CSS. I've been professionally freelancing and have built a number of dynamic front-end and full stack web applications. I love how much tech has shaped my life, and am happy to have turned a passion into a career
