Who am I?

I am a web developer based in Pittsburgh and I work at a non-profit where I design, build, and maintain websites with help from an awesome communications team. Occasionally, I attend company events as an in-house photographer which allows me to get out of the office and stretch my legs. Some of these photos can be viewed on my Flickr page.

I obtained my web degree at Pittsburgh Technical Institute (now Pittsburgh Technical College) in 2015. Since then I have been developing and designing on a regular basis for my day job and for freelance. I really love what I do.

My other interests include a good video or board game, weight training, yoga, movies, reading an adventure or thriller series and trying to find the best buffalo chicken pizza that Pittsburgh has to offer.

More About Me.

I actually enjoy debugging code because I like to solve problems.

I got into amateur photography when I took a class at PTC.

I enjoy lifting and yoga. Both keep me focused and balanced. (:

I love Buffalo Chicken Pizza and I hope to try every pizza shop in the Burgh!
