Programmer. Creator. Entrepreneur.

Passionate about programming and problem solving. I love being able to help make someone’s life easier by pragmatically solving a pain point.

Hi. I ... love being challenged, feel excited solving a tough coding problem, love the satisfaction from writing elegant code, get a great sense of accomplishment and personal pride, and even if I didn’t get paid for doing it, I’d likely do it anyway.
