I am a full-stack developer driven by a passion for learning, science, and technology. Originally studying chemistry and nutrition, I found my true calling when introduced to Python and coding. I work primarily with C#/.NET and Sitecore, along with typical front-end technologies. For personal projects I am currently using Python/Django and Angular, while also learning React and d3.js. Outside of coding my life mostly consists of family, food, video games, Chicago sports, and my dog. Thanks for visiting my page and take care!
