Summary

WHO I AM

I am a computer developer and UX/UI designer with a background in fine arts, who loves the web, design, and the creation process. I am as excited by smart markup and clever CSS, as I am by “sexy” code, and am always on the lookout for ways to combine all three.

My path to coding began with my want to create websites and applications that somehow helped the people I love. From there my profession as an artist expanded to include the digital world, and recently I’ve decided to pursue this path full time, as computer development offers me an unlimited supply of knowledge that will continue to change with time(My obsession with future tech and the unlimited possibilities it creates, helped as well..lol).

WHAT IM LOOKING FOR

The ideal work environment to me is one that is always testing your limits. I’m looking to surround myself with brilliant and creative minds, where just working alongside each other makes you a better developer.  A company with attractive incentives, and a great company culture who has a product that I can wholeheartedly support, and pour my blood, sweat, and tears into, in hopes of building something that will truly make life easier for someone. Or who has a product that is cutting edge, like anything AI, or VR ( both of which I have little experience with, but I’ll happily learn.)
