I'm a frontend developer in NYC, where I focus on React, JavaScript/TypeScript, and NodeJS. I love learning the newest technologies to create great web experiences. I'm currently at Great Jones, where I'm working as a frontend dev on a team to build React apps.

Previously, I worked at Kip, where I worked on a Slack bot built with NodeJS and later worked in a team creating an entirely new frontend in React.
