I am an award winning web developer with a focus on the front-end and UX. In the last 10+ years I've worked with small businesses, non-profits, news organizations, universities, and Fortune 500 companies, on everything from simple websites, to prototypes and design systems, to complex multi-platform apps. I've mentored developers, built teams, led large projects, and even co-founded a startup.

In my spare time, I moonlight as a writer and editor. I co-write a digital, licensed comic book called Half-Life: A Place in the West, and I've contributed to tabletop roleplaying games including Slugblaster (Indie Groundbreaker's GOTY for 2022) and the Crescent Moon editions The Exiles and B/X. I have also written some RPG supplements and am designing my own game, working title "A Passage Through".
I have a 19-year-old cat that I've raised from a kitten, about a dozen plants, an incalculable number of board games, and multiple literature-inspired tattoos. I love early 2000s emo music, storytelling, horror movies, and good design. I play guitar poorly, host a monthly book club, and enjoy pineapple on my pizza.
I love introspection, learning, and growing. I love safe spaces, assuming positive intent, and admitting mistakes. I love honest conversations about difficult topics. I love putting my heart and soul into things. I love empathy.
