About Me

As a little kid I made little programs on the TRS-80. I spent my teenage years viewing source code, and learned how to reverse-engineer websites. Now I'm a Development Team Lead at BlueToad doing full-stack development with JavaScript and PHP on a daily basis.

I'm currently working on sharpening my skills in web accessibility, learning Rust, and tinkering with IoT and home automation projects. I also make generative and glitch art. I also love cooking and baking, and sometimes I add new recipes to my blog.
