Constant learner, front end software engineer, thinker and sincere people person. Always interested in a new project, connection or opportunity!
I grew up fascinated by computers. I got my start coding with QBASIC and a DOS command prompt in my parent's basement. In 2001, I built my first web page, and I've been working on the web ever since. My college career was a varied and unique preparation for working on the web; I studied Computer Science for two years, and then graduated with a degree in Mass Media Communication and a minor that includes Graphic Design and Animation. My professional background has been focused on front end web development and UX, and has been rounded out with some experience in back end programming, database administration, design, project management, marketing and SEO. Most recently, I spent two years in the Dominican Republic to learn Spanish and expand my understanding of how another culture uses the web.
