Summary

As a junior web-developer, my goal is to continue to build my skills and comprehension through collaboration, hands-on-experience and mentorship.

When I think about web-development, I think about the users. I have a strong desire to determine how users wish to interact with a website, and make sure those wishes are met. A flawless interaction between the user and the product on all platforms is what I strive for. 

With a background in both business and web-development, I believe in a business first approach when I think about the internet and why we use it. I want to use web-development to resolve the pains of users and consumers so they can spend more of their time doing things they truly enjoy.   

I am inspired by the work of others, and love working as a team to break down problems and find solutions.
