About Me

As a professional, I take responsibility for embracing a company’s mission and helping them put their best foot forward. As a friend, I care deeply about serving others and encouraging them to be the best version of themselves. As a person, I create intentional space for a community to thrive. I’m a loyalist who sticks through thick and thin, a creative who can see beyond the chaos, and a developer who can maintain a steady pace through the process.
