Graduated from Serrano High School in 2003
Self-taught in web design since 2005
I spend most of my free time voraciously learning new things. I often work on personal projects sometimes to teach myself and sometimes to solve a particular problem. I also spend time collaborating with peers at hackerspaces and on each other's projects. I play the ukulele, am a lifelong vegetarian, ride my bicycle for my primary transportation, and have a pet chipmunk named Artie.
At 19 I started my first job managing a business and began my WW2 & mid-century inspired fashion business in my spare time. After working with web technologies and fashion design simultaneously for several years, web development quickly took place as my passion. I have been a web designer for about seven years and have loved keeping up with the new technologies of web development. I plan to expand on these skills, including building my own web apps, as well as micro-controller embedded programming and to otherwise become a more diverse programmer. I truly love what I do and it shows in my work.
