I am a full stack developer working the last few years with a stack of React w/ Redux, Node, Express, MongoDB, Firebase and Graphql. I have also enjoyed building for mobile apps in React-Native and sharpening my Golang chops, and to be honest I don’t particularly enjoy writing own bios much and most of the work I am proud of is in private repos.
Born and raised in Mountain View, CA(Before google took over the town). I attended html summer camps at Stanford as a kid and always had a computer at home as far back as I can remember. Mathblast, Carmen Sandiego, Corel Draw, Encarta, etc. I attended college in San Francisco, receiving a degree in psychology and film, and was tweaking some basic websites for friends and social networks. I moved to NYC to be closer to family. I soon found a job with a design firm and absorbed more and more of their IT and Accounting workload, enabling the firm to let go of IT contracts and consolidate the firm’s backend needs.
In 2015, I was getting tired of consuming so many websites and apps and kept seeing the limitations of the app or places where I wanted to tweak the app. Some times a small part of the design or other times want to add more robust features or want to even totally redo the app entirely. I wanted to really start creating and contributing, so I started to take MOOC’s and follow various tutorials working mainly with Python and Ruby, building various projects, a sandwich tracker and some other small projects, but the magic was hidden behind gems and I wanted to really get into the nitty gritty, so end of 2016 decided to take a bigger step, kick this thing into gear for real.
