I'm a software developer currently based in the Greater Boston Area.

After having managed databases for various small businesses for several years, I've decided to take my career to the next level. I've switched over to full-stack web development and have been thoroughly enjoying it. Having graduated with a BA in Applied Mathematics, I'm particularly interested in analytics and security, though my passion for problem solving shines through in whatever tasks are given to me.
