Ruby on Rails Developer

Let's build things with our brains.

After being exposed to a product-driven culture at Birchbox I realized that I wanted to be at the forefront of tech and build product as well. Having decided that I wanted to become a programmer, I set out to do just that. I went to the Flatiron School and learned the full stack of technologies required to build a web app from the ground up. Between my coursework and project work, I covered Ruby, Rails, Git, HTML, CSS, jQuery, and SQL. Most importantly I developed a passion for coding. 

Now I'm a freelance dev and have been happily working my way through a myriad of projects. I'm constantly looking to level up as a programmer and can't wait for what's to come.
