I'm a passionate developer

I am an experienced React developer and enjoy working daily with GraphQL and Tailwind. My current role at an edtech startup has provided me an interest in the potential for AI to help provide personalized learning at scale.

Outside of coding, I'm an avid podcast listener, with 'How I Built This' being a favorite. Hearing the stories of successful entrepreneurs and innovators who've made a global impact inspires me.

I have hope in technology's potential to drive positive change when guided by ethical principles. I strive to contribute to innovative projects that shape the future.
