About me

I think differently

I love to solve problems in creative ways. Challenges and constraints strengthen my resolve to design solutions.

I'm a dreamer

I love to observe what is and dream up what could be.

I make my own tools

I was in the process of planning a road trip and I couldn't find a tool I liked to help me map it out. I created my own trip planner using the Google Maps API, added some custom Javascript to the map, and created markers for all the potential stops along the way.

Running is a big part of who I am

I've been a runner for as long as I can remember, competing in everything from 400 meters to 26.2 miles. Running is my way to reconnect with myself and my surroundings, and the mental strength I gain from running extends to all the other areas of my life.

I'm always learning

If I’m not working towards a meaningful goal, I don’t feel alive. Currently, I’m working hard to become a better writer, exploring color theory, figuring out how to build sites using PHP, and learning how to juggle.
