About Me


I have years of experience as a software engineer, and have worked at small startups and worked on numerous personal projects. While I'm a proficient full-stack developer, I love learning new technologies and communicating new ideas.

I love building things. When I was young I spent a lot a time breaking and rebuilding computers. While hard engineering problems are often intrinsically fun to tackle, I'm most attracted to solving real customer problems with a business justification. I'm looking for a senior individual contributor role where I can take on on collaborative team leadership responsibilities, and gain experience with architecture and project management.
