A senior engineer with six years of experience in mobile and web dev land 🌐

Motivated by my Peace Corps volunteer work, I'm passionate about designing solutions and building tech that makes people happier, and enjoy working with others who strive to do the same.

Passionate about capacity-building and co-designing in international health? I'm also a fractional engineering executive at Puente, a tech nonprofit that creates and uses data collection and analysis software to identify and respond to health needs in international development.

Let's work together!

I've worked at some cool places

And have built some serious engineering and design chops along the way. Whether you're in need of a new design system or a new mobile app front-to-back, I have the skills and know-how to make the rubber meet the road with your ideas and bring delight to your users!
