About Me

Me celebrating the conclusion of the GRE!

I grew up in Minnesota thinking I wanted to be an English teacher, expanding to pursue other languages (Hebrew, Spanish, and French) until my first year of college at the University of Denver. I helped a friend with her Java homework one night and enjoyed it so much I switched majors, earning my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science with a focus in Digital Media and Game Development.

During high school I discovered my love for computers and programming through Internet Relay Chat and the MMORPG RuneScape, which led me to my first coding project spanning 4 years and containing over 10,000 lines of code.

Currently, I'm a Lead Developer on a lively fully-distributed team at Tighten. I spend my days developing a variety of modern web and mobile applications using tools like Laravel, VueJS, and NativeScript.

When I'm not programming I enjoy playing with my beagle mix Sudo, reading (often about programming), singing a cappella, playing video games, obstinately chatting on IRC, and drinking copious amounts of coffee.
