I’m a full-stack developer who is passionate about creative problem-solving and asking questions. I’ve worked across many frameworks and languages, but I truly love working with WordPress and finding new ways to leverage the power of blocks. I read and write documentation with enthusiasm, and am always ready to learn something new. I am fascinated by the logical process of programming regardless of framework or language. I love puzzles and coming up with creative solutions to problems, so I face challenging work with drive and excitement. I have a background in English Literature, which has given me an eye for syntax and the ability to perform self-directed research when encountering unfamiliar code.
When I’m not coding, you can find me hanging upside-down from an aerial apparatus, reading, playing video games, and hanging out with my two dogs.
I recently made the best impulse purchase of my life, and replaced my car with an e-bike, and have happily replaced commuting for adventures. I am interested in remote opportunities only.

What the aerial community has taught me about failure
I’ve been thinking a lot about aerial arts lately. It’s the thing I miss most from the before times. The thing is, my primary discipline is pole, and I have a home pole. It’s not totally the same, but I can still practice a lot of the things I’m comfortable with, so what do I […]
SVG Line Animation for Beginners
I love SVG line animation because it looks amazing as an effect, but is also simple enough to grasp that I was able to use it in one of my very first SVG animation. Don’t know what an SVG is? That’s perfectly fine! I had to Google “what is an SVG” before making the pen […]
