I'm a full stack web developer and recent graduate of General Assembly's immersive web development program seeking a junior-level developer role.  While I have a strong interest in JavaScript and the MEAN stack, I'm hungry to learn and am open to any opportunity that will allow me to grow as a developer, regardless of language.  I came to web development after working as a full-time musician, a business owner, and SEO consultant.
