Shipped a side project
Last month, I started working on building an "adventure database," a living travel and food (mostly food) journal that lives online.

When my fiancee and I moved to Austin, we started capturing our experiences (from food to nature and more) in a Notion database. We did this so that we could remember places that we’ve visited and create a database for when our friends visited and came to town.

Quickly outgrowing the database on Notion, we also realized that as the world opens up, we wanted to capture the same kind of information through our future travels. That’s when I put the software engineer hat on and decided to build out this website for our adventures.

The project is a living thing, evolving in its own ways constantly, and the latest is here:

Litmus Life on Rails

It's been a little less than 2 months at Litmus and I've been learning a lot. Being on a remote-first team has been super fun, because of the async cadence and communication. It's cool to be autonomous, collaborating with people across several time zones. Did I mention that I love this team?? 

I've been building new features, fixing bugs, and navigating our Rails application, getting more comfortable by the day. As I've been onboarding, I've dug more deeply into RSpec, Rails, Rake tasks, emails, and more. 

This is a great ecosystem, and I feel immensely grateful to be where I am. I'm doubling down on all the things I've wanted to, in development and my career!

Joined an Early Adopter Program
First highlight! I'm super excited to check out Polywork as an early adopter! This will hopefully be a place that I can connect with others and share the progress of my journey. 

Titan's a pretty cool AI assistant, too.
