I'm a developer, designer, and doodler.

I love to explore compassion in everything I do, especially engineering. Compassionate engineering can be practicing self-care with your codebase, focussing on accessibility on a product, or standing up for an inclusive culture within the team.

I also love kundalini yoga, drawing cartoons, and improv.

The web is where I love to work and grow. Every day is exciting, with an opportunity for growth.

Got a cool Project?

I'm always interested in hearing new, neat projects. I'd love to help.
