About

I began developing websites professionally my senior year in highschool and have been hooked ever since. Over the past ten years, I have worked for many clients including BAE Systems, The University of Texas System, and, more recently, the NFL at women.nfl.com. I am currently specializing in accessible, cross-browser HTML5 code that retains consistent branding between desktop and mobile platforms.

In my spare time, I enjoy rock climbing, hiking, cycling, backpacking, driving long distances, kayaking, and snowboarding. Although I travel 3-4 months out of the year, I work year-round and enjoy working from all over the world.

I am currently based in New York, NY although I left my heart in Austin, TX and tend to spend a lot of time in Denver, CO.
