I’m a developer, a designer, and a maker. I build products and tools that solve real user problems, and I have fun doing it. I like diving into new technologies, flipping them upside-down and inside-out to figure out how and why they work. I’m a quick study and have an appetite for learning.
Located in Seattle, WA, I'm currently looking for rad engineering opportunities. I like companies that are funky and diverse, transparent and supportive, where people are proud of the work they do. If that sounds like someplace you know, get in touch!

Senior Software Engineer • October 2017 - Present
I began as backend engineer, working with Python and Django to create rich APIs for new features. I accessed CouchDB documents to integrate mobile client data with our backend data, stored in MySQL tables.
Currently, I am working on the Android product, simultaneously maintaining a high quality standard on the current product while rewriting the code base with a new data model and current best practices.

Neo Innovation, Inc, San Francisco • Software Engineer
November 2014 - October 2015
As part of a cross-functional team, I work closely with designers and product managers to craft and deliver features for data-driven products. My current project is a Rails app with an Ember front-end, and I pair program on features / bugs / chores that touch the full-stack. Currently, I'm pairing with a designer, focusing on redesigning and implementing a fresh UX, which has me deep in Ember land.
