About

I'm a Houston-based software developer with a background in education. My professional interests include full-stack web development, IoT, gamification, and user-centered design. I work for Timbergrove.

On a personal note, I'm a sci-fi lover, awesome cook, and puzzle fanatic (sudoku, jigsaws, crosswords--you name it). I'm into the civic tech scene here in Houston and enjoy volunteering regularly.

My works in progress. Volunteer stuff, plus things I tinker with in my spare time.

As a professional programmer, I think it's still important to make time for projects that do absolutely nothing for your career. I try to build silly little things like this to learn about new technologies and reignite the simple joy that comes from making a computer do something cool. Hopefully these not-so-polished examples of my work give you some idea of who I am as a coder, without all the slick frameworks, agile processes, and hours of QA that come along with modern application development.
