I'm a creative software developer who loves to make useful things with code.

Four years ago, hoping to find a solution to some tricky sales forecasting problems at work, I learned R and fell in love with coding. I worked suuuper hard to learn everything about dev work in my free time. That led me from R to JavaScript, from React to Swift, from Java to C#. Plus, a whole bunch of other stuff along the way.

Amazingly, I’m now a Software Engineer 2 at Bench Accounting in Vancouver, BC.

In my spare time, I love trying and failing to reach my Goodreads reading challenge goal, improving Wikipedia pages on history, photography, videography, growing plants, cooking, and building games in Unity.
