A LITTLE ABOUT ME
As a left-brain/right-brain hybrid (think mathlete/theatre kid), I never thought I'd find a field that challenged me technically and creatively. I grew up dreading the day when I'd need to give up one of my passions. Luckily, I discovered programming, and fell in love with its perfect balance of logic and creativity.
Until recently, I taught Full-Stack Web Development at App Academy NYC. At the moment, I'm consulting on several projects, running a theatre company, and consuming dangerous quantities of iced coffee and/or adventuring around my beautiful hometown, NYC.
I'm not currently seeking full-time employment, but I'm always looking to expand my network and contribute to exciting projects built by awesome people. If you think I'd be a fit for your team, I'd love to meet you!
