About Me

I began my journey 11 years ago as a junior UI engineer for a small design company building ColdFusion websites for construction companies. Today, I am leading the UI efforts on a React-based design system for one of America's largest insurance companies.

Throughout my career, I have seen the Web grow from simple HTML websites into full-on data-driven Web apps. Through these times, I have invested countless hours honing my skills to stay on top of the next emerging technology trend. I am not an expert at everything out there, but I'd have no problem building a Node.js app with RESTful APIs and a front-end layer in React or Vue.js.

Most of my career has been in an Agile environment, so I am used to working fast under tight deadlines.

Fun fact: I have been a homebrewer for about 3 years and have about 25 batches under my belt. My favorite styles include American Pale Ale, India Pale Ale, Stouts, and just about any Belgian-style beer I can get my hands on.
