BIO

IMG_2429.JPG

I am a NYC-based software engineer and visual designer who is passionate about the intersection of art and technology. I love to design and build stunning interactive experiences.

My professional experience consists of 2.5 years as a graphic designer, 2.5 years as a multimedia lab computer consultant, and over 5 years as an independent visual designer. For the past couple years, I spent nights and weekends obsessively self-studying HTML+CSS+JS and designing & building websites. While I have had some formal computer science education (C++ in college and Java in high school), I truly fell in love with coding when I was exploring web development on my own. As coding became a natural extension of my creative skill set, I decided to seriously pursue a career change. I finally took the plunge by attending a 17-week software engineering immersive – The Grace Hopper Program at Fullstack Academy – where I gained proficiency in full-stack Javascript and the NERD stack, developed & deployed several full-stack apps in an Agile environment, and even won an award for Best UI Design at our hackathon. As I approach graduation, I am seeking a career in front-end software engineering, which ideally allows me to exercise both my creative and technical abilities.

My technical skills include proficiency in JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, Express, React, Redux, Axios, Sequelize, PostgreSQL, Git & Github, and Material-UI. I have familiarity with Python, jQuery, D3, SQL, SVG, OAuth, Passport, Sockets, Stripe, Heroku, Mocha, Chai, TDD, and Agile development. My creative skill set encompasses the Adobe Creative Suite, (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, AfterEffects), Figma, Final Cut Pro X, SketchUp, Cinema4D, and traditional & digital illustration.

When I am not working or studying, you can find me exploring new food places around the city, adopting a new houseplant from the farmer’s market, skating at the ice rink, watching The Office with my dog Mango, or creating & coding for the sheer joy of it.
