Solving complex technical challenges has always been something I enjoyed. Currently, I am a Software Engineer working hard to transform great ideas into quality web applications. From front end to back end, I'm always ready to jump in and get things done. I've developed new projects from a clean slate that are now in production and have also worked with large mature projects.


Ruby, Rails, and React are my primary strength. Additionally, I’ve gained experience visualizing data using d3.js. Some other things that I’ve had some exposure to include: Elasticsearch, AWS, AngularJS, Elixir/ Phoenix, data analytics in the R language, mobile app development using Cordova.
