I'm a software engineer with a specialization in web development. In my three years of professional experience, I've taken on projects using unfamiliar technologies and learned by doing. I master new stacks quickly, and love to share my knowledge with others. Looking for a position where I can continue to advance my technical and leadership skills, work with passionate people, and contribute to the growth of a company I believe in.
