Summary

In my 2+ years in my current role as an iOS developer at Expedia, I've rapidly developed my skills through the constant challenges that come with developing features for an enterprise app. Joining an experienced team with great mentorship at the start of my career has allowed me to transition from an inexperienced boot camp grad changing careers to a competent developer delivering quality code alongside the rest of the team. I am hungry to grow my iOS skills, as well as to learn new skills and become a more complete developer. I'm looking for opportunities that will take me out of my comfort zone and force me to confront new challenges.
