About Me

I write code and try to distract my teammates with poor jokes. I do front-end and mobile application development, wear flipflops, and periodically spend my time fighting evil. My turnoffs include Internet Explorer 6, poorly formatted code, and current pop music. My mom told me I'm her favorite kid.

My goal is to build cool components and software that users love. And to someday own a falcon.
