Who am I?

I am a software engineer based in the San Francisco Bay Area, currently working as the main front end developer at Beat45.

After always gravitating towards programming while attaining my BS and MS in structural engineering at University of Colorado and at UC Davis respectively, I decided to transition my career into software.


I have coded extensively in vanilla JavaScript, React, Redux, and jQuery. I have read all six volumes of Kyle Simpson's YDKJS series and now eagerly wait for someone to ask me what closure is someday.
I thoroughly enjoy bringing wireframes and mockups to life using CSS3. I put great importance on keeping CSS codebase scaleable by utilizing combinations of SASS/SCSS, Styled Components, and BEM.
I have worked closely with Ruby on Rails for the past 2 years. I can confidently build RESTful APIs, query and build relational databases (PostgreSQL), and handle deployment in AWS and Heroku environments.
