Everything I do is united by one theme: my intense urge to help others. I'm particularly focused on creating web designs and applications for underserved communities or nonprofits. Also, I like Sushi.

I realized that I was destined for coding greatness when I launched my first website at the age of 10 - it was a site that sold custom content for the sims. I grew up poor, but my mom somehow pulled together enough money to buy me a desktop computer and I've been completely obsessed with technology and its effects on our world since.

I graduated from Wellesley College with a B.A. in Cinema and Media Studies and Psychology, which is quite the departure from software development. I've been all sorts of things: a television writer, a paralegal, a nanny, a librarian, and now, a web developer. In all of my very different jobs I'm passionate, innately curious, and supremely driven.

Skills

My first language is Ruby/Rails. I can sling HTML/CSS in my sleep and I love using Javascript to enhance user experiences. I can learn anything pretty quickly, luckily!

Why did you switch from television writing to law to coding?

It's simple: I have a million passions. I soak up new information like a sponge and I like giving everything the good college try at least once. It turns out that I'm proficient at anything I set my mind to.

What else should I know about you?

I'm great on a trivia team.
