About Me

I started building websites for fun at age 16 (once I got a computer that could run AOL and Netscape at the same time). I get dopamine hits from problem solving.

My grandfather was an engineer and logical problem-solving runs in my blood. I love to find solutions and to communicate ideas clearly with straightforward design that doesn't rely on flashy tricks.

I am inspired by new ideas and refuse to stop learning. I enjoy a challenge and become an expert by seeking answers and improving my processes iteration after iteration. I believe in collaboration with motivated teams but also thrive working independently.

I learn best by doing and am fortunate to have worked in positions and at companies where I could try everything.
