About me

I'm a software developer with a passion for learning and pushing myself to my limits. I have determined that only while constantly raising the bar can I improve the quality of the products I contribute to.

My experiences learning sound design and working on game development teams showed me my passion for collaborating with others on technical projects to accomplish something greater. Working in tandem with people of various backgrounds and specialties can result in a combination of perspectives that leads to a more polished product. I enjoy embracing this type of work culture and pushing for higher standards throughout.

Working in the restaurant industry, I found opportunities to expand and utilize my skills to administer and optimize software used to assist customers and track user consumption data. I enjoy looking for ways to optimize processes and tools, and this was a great platform to practice this and learn about focusing on the clients' needs as well.

I am excited to use my diverse experiences and skill sets to build and improve applications with a focus on improving the user experience.
