My passion is crafting beautiful code into beautiful experiences.

I work on the engineering team at Simple Contacts. My expertise is on the front end, with additional experience in back-end development, design, UX, writing, and editing. I'm especially into React these days.

Along with plenty of coding, my most satisfying role is managing projects and people to create a team that is truly greater than the sum of its parts.
