About

Not your typical nerd. I quite passionately introduce myself as a Full-Stack Creative Software Engineer, passionate about Full-Stack Creative Coding, Machine Learning, and AI, with an enthusiastic student-minded eagerness. I've been diving headfirst into the tech industry for over 10 years, and while my keyboard has thankfully stayed clean, my hands have gotten quite dirty learning, exploring, and engineering cool things prizing the agility of a T-shaped skill set.

But professionally, I am a dynamic Full-Stack Creative Software Engineer with over 7 years of comprehensive hands-on experience in architecting, designing, developing, and deploying enterprise-level applications across various platforms and industries.

My expertise shines in creating immersive, interactive user interfaces and robust back-end solutions that power them, ensuring seamless functionality and integration, while seamlessly integrating advanced Machine Learning and AI technologies. I’ve adeptly managed cross-functional teams in both on-site and remote environments, pushing the boundaries of technology to consistently exceed business objectives. My technical acumen is complemented by exceptional interpersonal skills—skills developed from unexpected roles such as bartending—enabling me to foster innovative and collaborative project environments.

Proficient in a broad tech stack including but not limited to:

🥷 • JavaScript | NodeJS | Python | React | Next.js | Flask | AWS | Angular | TypeScript | React Native | Flutter | Express | Redux | jQuery | PHP | GSAP | Three.js | WebGL | C# | .NET | C++ | SQL | Postgres | Firebase | MongoDB | GitHub | Vercel | CI/CD | Terraform | Web3 • UI/UX Design | Figma | Adobe XD | Adobe Photoshop | Unity | Unreal Engine | Game Development | FL Studio | Music Production • Scalable Architecture | API Design and Integration | Agile Development | Data Management and Security | Performance Optimization | Machine Learning and AI Integration | Full-Stack | Frontend | Backend

Brian Herbert once said, "The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice." I couldn't agree more.
