I’m a developer living in Metro Detroit; using my experience to make complicated things seem effortless, simpler, and elegant.

With a strong background in Mathematics and Information Technology (Multimedia Concentration) I’m analytically minded with a focus on user experience. I’ve worked with C++/C#, Objective-C, PHP, MySQL, Python, Javascript, Version Control with Git and am interested in learning more.
