I grew up loving two things most in the world: science and building stuff. I have always had a big imagination and an aptitude for using my creativity. What drew me to science as a child was curiosity and the appreciation for the natural world around me. There were things to see and problems to solve. My hobbies include sewing, guitar, programming, birding, board games, mountain biking, reading and playing outside.
Sewing is one of my longest-lived hobbies, and is logical and sequential such as programming. What drew me to building websites was the desire to make a simple site to display my crafts. I couldn't find the template I wanted in Wordpress so I decided to learn how to make a static site. I used bootstrap, HTML, CSS, and jekyll site generator to build my first site. I found myself wanting to spend more time working on my site, and dreaming of how to improve it. It was then I realized I wanted to do this full time. I began teaching myself to code and built small programs and websites.
My strengths as a programmer include problem solving, creativity, perserverance, and curiosity.
