About

Welcome to the corner of the Internet where a repository of my imagination is transpiled into code. I embarked on a journey toward becoming a Front End Software Engineer by attending DevMountain, a three month intensive bootcamp that offers a full stack curriculum. This adventure has ultimately led me to join the team at WebstaurantStore, where I spend my day writing performant code in React and leveling up my JavaScript skills.

Here are just a few interests of mine outside of programming:

  • Roller Coasters
  • Japanese Culture
  • Arcades
  • Vaporwave
  • Creative Writing
  • Traveling
  • Swimming
  • Biking
