I am a Seattle based web developer comfortable with both front and back end technologies. I'm happy to work on the look of a site with HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap, to work on UIs, and to work on the server side. Whether the back end is Node.js or Ruby on Rails I'm ready to dig in. Learning new technologies is my passion.
I've transitioned away from wine sales, which I did for a number of years. Selling wine was fun, but I felt the need to do something more creative. Building websites satisfies my creative drive.
I've learned my skills in several places, from Code Fellows to the University of Washington to my own time spent in front of the computer coding. I really enjoy crafting websites. It's great to create something from nothing.
When I'm not in front of my laptop I enjoy swimming, walking, hiking, reading, movies, photography, and travel. I'm told I have a warped sense of humor, which must come from all those years watching Monty Python.
