 I am a full-stack developer from Boston, MA. Before becoming a software engineer, I was studying music therapy at Berklee College of Music where I had the opportunity to work with a number of different clinical populations. I made the decision to switch careers into tech during the start of the Covid pandemic by enrolling in App Academy, a 6-month intensive coding bootcamp. Over the course of the 6-month curriculum, I was exposed to modern technologies such as Javascript, React, Node.js and Python and learned how to build full-stack web apps from scratch.

I am a software engineer in SoCal, specializing in full-stack web development. I am the founder of “Code n’ Coffee”, a coding meetup group in Glendale, CA. I have worked on many projects using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, ReactJS, NodeJS and built websites using server-less technology such as NextJS, Gatsby and graphQL APIs. When I’m not coding, I like doing activities such as hiking, jumping rope, traveling, and learning new skills. I believe a better future starts with children’s literacy.
