About Me

Hello World! I am a former project manager, teacher, and broadcast operations specialist for a state-wide radio network. I've been an avid builder and tinkerer since my first Lego set at 3 years old. I fell in love with programming while working in radio, where I was introduced to batch scripting for process automation. I became captivated by computers and from that moment on I was motivated to learn more about the inner-workings of these amazing machines. I wanted to interface with computers as directly as possible, and decided to build my career around the pursuit of this knowledge. Passionate about coding, learning, teamwork, and problem-solving, my strength is seeing the big picture and understanding how all aspects of an operation coalesce.

I built the API for beer data myself using PostgreSQL for the database and Node/Express for the server. The app is hosted on Heroku, please give the live site 15 seconds to load.
