I have been intrigued by the ability to solve problems through computer programming ever since I was in grade school. Despite objections that it wasn’t appropriate for the science fair, I taught myself how to write a program. Programming quickly became a passion that has stuck with me and grown into a career, with a specific focus on full stack web development. I thoroughly enjoy the continued challenges that software development provides – code can always be more efficient, the user experience can always be improved, iterations and deployments can always be faster and smoother, and there is always a new library or language to master. Meeting these challenges head-on with a positive, get-things-done attitude is something I excel at.
