Summary

Experienced web developer and licensed non-practicing nurse.

I have a passion for front-end development, writing clean code and learning new tools and libraries. In addition to working autonomously I have ample experience working within team and agency environments.

Over the last couples years I have been diving deeper into WordPress with a focus on custom theme and administration development. Currently, I am exploring MongoDB, Express.js, Angular.js v2 RC using TypeScript, Node.js, React (js and native), Ionic v2 Beta and a touch of Swift.

I am currently seeking and exploring new opportunities in marketing, e-learning and healthcare.
