I've been a tech geek since I was a kid. In Middle School, I taught myself C++ and have never looked back. Since high school, I've worked on a number of coding projects for fun and for profit.
I recently completed a BA from Duke University, majoring in Computer Science and Public Policy. The past few months, I've been working as an independent tech consultant and developer while helping a family member recover from major surgery. Now, I'm seeking a full time position at a disruptive tech company. Eventually, I want to become a PM or even tech executive—but I want a firm grasp of engineering fundamentals first. I developed this page as a digital resume and showcase for projects I'm working on.
I am available for hire now—for the right project. If my skillset might be a good fit for your idea, please reach out!
