Bio

Building on a career in climate science where I specialized in geospatial data analytics and visualizations, I decided to blend my love of coding and communication with my interests in design and style, and dive into web development. Creating spaces in our digital world that are fast, engaging, and reliable has become a passion ever since. Practicing yoga, playing guitar, and cooking balance out my computer time.
