About Me


I offer a versatile skill-set that includes full-stack web development, software engineering, design, and photography. My main coding stack is React, Node, Express, and MongoDB. For design, I use Adobe software and Figma. I'm grateful for any opportunity to connect with others, help ideas come to life, and continually expand my horizons. When I'm not working, you can find me playing chess, hanging out with my cat Lou, or climbing at the bouldering gym.

Ideal Workplace Values

Ideally, I'd like to work on a diverse team using technology for social good.
