I like to build things.
As a developer, I like the difficult problems, those that require deep thought but help people save seconds, minutes and hours off their day. Removing complexity is remarkably complex but immensely important. I am skilled in Node, React/Redux, CSS, HTML, Objective-C and Swift. I am familiar with internationalization and accessibility and why they are important.
As a community builder I have over 10 years of online community management experience with large and small communities in both corporate and non-profit spaces. I am versed in all facets of community building, including: day to day management, vendor and platform selection and management, legal and sociological requirements, and gamification and cross-social interactions. I am an advocate for community as an integral part of the full customer experience.
In addition to programming and community management, I enjoy taking the stage to present interesting topics which speak to my interests and passions.
In an alternative timeline, there is a version of me happily passing the hours building furniture.
