About Me

I fondly remember my paperback copy of HTML Goodies. Under its guidance, I built an assortment of static websites to host whatever my young heart desired. This was the year 2001, when inline styling was a given. I discovered a love for sculpting a website from scraps of code, building it piece by piece.

 

If I'd known then that I could make a career out of web development, I might have majored in Computer Science. Instead, my passion for human rights led me to an undergrad degree in political science, followed by a master's in international studies. Later, during the aftermath of the Great Recession, I co-founded a startup, Masspire LLC, with a friend and rediscovered my early enthusiasm for web development.

 

Of course, the "World Wide Web" has changed a great deal since 2001, but I've always had a love for learning. I set to work brushing up on my HTML and CSS, then moved on to studying JavaScript and programming in Java. My journey here has been circuitous, but as they say: better late than never.

Responsive Design

Building sites that gracefully degrade for the mobile web.

A RESTful Web

Following the principles of REST in all applications.

Up-To-Date

Staying current on the newest tech and minding the fads.

Professional

I'm passionate about web design and programming.

When I'm not coding, I can be found hiking any of Colorado's trails with friends, or, in the winter, wading through banks of snowdrift. My other interests include heading a critique circle for speculative fiction writers, tabletop RPGs, knitting, weightlifting, and photography.
