I've been working with the web for many moons and take pride in crafting pleasurable experiences. I'm currently in San Francisco working at Hired as a project engineer to help folks find amazing gigs.
I grew up in a small town in central California. I'd always had an interest in design and began obtaining the skills to design, illustrate, and animate while in high school. Meanwhile, my passion for video games inspired me to start creating them myself. Although I could illustrate and animate, my projects were always limited by the fact that I couldn't code.
Eventually, I taught myself what I needed to know while working a full-time gig doing tech support. I've built upon those learnings and now primarily focus on building rich web applications of all sorts. I'm still learning a ton and having a blast doing it.
I generally dislike formality, and try to bring compassion, humor, and empathy to my daily interactions. Your value to a team doesn't stop at your technical aptitude.
In the end, we're all human and life is too short to take everything seriously.
