hi there, my name is
I build cool software.
I'm a software engineer based in the San Francisco Bay Area specializing in back-end architectures, cloud infrastructures, and API development. I take pride in designing and implementing impactful software that is feature-rich and easy-to-use.
Originally from the Silicon Valley, I migrated down to San Diego for college at the University of San Diego. I've worked on a variety of software teams doing a variety of software things, from home security to DNA sequencing to autonomous aircraft. I'm passionate about using software to find creative solutions to complex problems.
Outside of work, I still like to code. When I'm not coding, you can find me playing my ukulele and keyboard, planning new woodworking projects, or tending to my house plants.
Things I work with on the daily.
- Node, Express
- Bash, Homebrew
- GCP, Bamboo
- HTML, CSS
- Linux, git
Accoutrement I've used in the past.
- Java, Swift, C, Deno
- Heroku, AWS, DigitalOcean
- Django, BeautifulSoup
- Jenkins, Travis CI, GitHub Actions
- PostgreSQL, SQLite
The Tools for my Jobs.
Building quality software is what I do. I am proficient in a number of mainstream coding languages, libraries, and tools, and productive with others in a matter of hours.
I have experience designing, building, and maintaining software projects of all sizes. I regularly advocate for investing in infrastructure, documentation, and process at all stages of a project.
