About Me

My interest in programming began during my high school freshman math class when I taught myself how to program a TI-83 calculator. Since that day many things have changed, but my love of programming has not.

When I'm not programming you can find me outside training for my next ultramarathon or in the kitchen making the latest loaf of homemade sourdough bread.

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, I look forward to working with you to create an amazing customer experience for your business.
