Professional bubble wrap popper. On the side, I do iOS development and investing. 

 

After graduating from USC with a psychology degree, I was in sales for many years, hustling and making sales as needed. The words "dial for dollars," I disagreed with. I knew metrics and an empathetic approach were necessary. I adapt these skills to coding and constantly focus on what makes sense from a user's perspective and data is absolutely boss.

I am a fan of Seneca, Jack Kerouac, and Mark Twain. I am an aspiring cook. I think of cooking as a form of alchemy and experimentation; although it can go horribly wrong. I enjoy reading books and hiking. I love playing with my dog, Megatron. 

I  ❤ Bacon + Swift.
