About Me

I'm a self-taught developer who loves to learn, looks for a challenge, and lives for the opportunity to create quality results. Currently working as a Senior SWE after several years in SDET roles. I spent a past career in restaurant operations, where I learned a lot about working well in teams, helping others develop and find success, and found a way to exercise my love of technology while doing it.
