Growing up, I was always a huge techie, but I never had to touch anything more involved than scripts to solve my computer problems before college. The first time I ran into coding was during a distribution requirement for my major, applied mathematics, while attending UCLA. During that class, I found that coding came very naturally to me, so I decided to pivot to web development after graduation.
The below is a selection of my past non-proprietary work. For better or worse, most of the work these days is proprietary.
