Profile

I am a full-stack web developer and recent graduate of Lighthouse Labs' web development bootcamp. A creative problem-solver, critical thinker and passionate learner, I love new challenges and exploring new technologies and am constantly curious about design and user experience. Combined with my background as an early employee of a successful e-commerce startup and my legal training, I have a breadth of skills and look forward to bringing my passion for  web development and my eagerness to learn to your organization.
