Brief Bio:

Prior to web development, I worked as an artist, writer, and amateur programmer. After freelancing for a while, I decided I wanted more stability in my work. I've built websites as a hobby since I was young, and the more I looked into career opportunities, the more I fell in love with development. After working on a couple of larger projects, I knew web development was the career I wanted.

Portfolio

GitHub Repos

Nearly all of my projects are open-source! Many are unlisted in this portfolio because they're works in progress, but I encourage you to poke around!

CodePen Projects

CodePens are fun coding playgrounds developers use to play with ideas or share small snippets.

Alias Generator

Alias generator was an early project I worked on to see what level my skills were at before getting them up to par. It's a fun little toy, but stands as a monument to how much progress I've made since its creation.

Travel Site

This stand-alone page was written as a code-along with Brad Schiff; I spent a lot of time playing with Gulp and Sass beyond Brad's lessons to challenge myself.
