I'm a professional software developer in Ithaca, NY.
When I'm not coding, you might find me re-watching The Office, drawing, or pleading to the videogame gods for better teammates in Halo 5 multi-player. I also like to write and volunteer.
At work and in life, I aim to emulate my biggest values: compassion and continuous growth. Aside from all the mushy stuff, I believe compassion can lead to clearer communication, better code, and more insightful solutions to problems - all things which benefit the users, coders, and business alike.
I have 4 years of professional experience developing software for www.givegab.com - GiveGab, the Nonprofit Giving Platform.
My skillset includes:
Sometimes I code for fun, too!
My personal projects include a couple websites, some small games, and a carshare calculator.
As a co-organizer for Ithaca Web People, I help coordinate monthly meet-ups where web professionals share their knowledge and interests. It's a great way to learn new things about tech.
As an active contributor to IWP, I've delivered two talks: an informative presentation about Stripe's Ruby API, and a brief presentation about software project estimation. I have also led a round-table Q&A session between professional developers and local computer science students.
I've logged over 130 volunteer hours since the summer of 2014!
My favorite volunteer destinations include:
