About Me

Ever since I was young I've had a habit of taking things apart to see how they worked, whether it was computers, guitars, bicycles or websites. As I got older I even learned how to put them back together! Web development has been a wonderful pursuit for me because it perfectly marries the ability to tell stories and connect people with the constant discovery of new ideas, new tools and new ways of doing things. I am constantly looking for ways to use development skills to affect or enhance real-world experiences.

When I'm not coding, I'm a multi-instrumentalist, luthier and music educator who has toured internationally with shows such as Mamma Mia!, Bye Bye Birdie, andCabaret.
