What I bring to the Table

Nine+ years of skillful web development, UX/UI design and visual design, both for the non-profit and for-profit sectors. I write clean, well commented code using Sublime Text or Visual Studio. The core of my work revolves around coding web applications and responsive websites. The project I'm most proud of however, stems from my years in the non-profit sector where I was part of an initiative aimed at bridging the gap between internet technology and grassroots NGOs in Sub-Saharan Africa, Central America and Brazil.

In the off hours...

I recently moved from San Francisco back to the DC area after almost seven years away. I certainly miss being able to ride my cyclocross bike pretty much all year long. Let's see what DC has to offer in terms of cycling! I enjoy the outdoors, cycling, boxing, foreign film, traveling. Photography has been a passion of mine ever since I got a hold of my first camera when I was eight years old. See my most recent pictures on Flickr.
