I have worked in professional web development since 2013, and currently specialize in front end technologies like React. I strive to build beautiful, accessible, functional, and performant applications that make the web a friendly and enjoyable experience for everyone.
As a hobbyist, I spend most of my free time working in podcasting and music production. With a bachelor’s degree in Audio Engineering Technology from Belmont University, a premiere music business and liberal arts school in Nashville, I do creative and production work for personal projects as well as volunteer work at churches.
My wife and I live in Austin, but have spent much of our lives in DFW as well. Together we enjoy video games, D&D, and anime, and have a Green Cheeked Conure named Mugi.
My current position is Senior Software Engineer at The Zebra, a website created to simplify insurance shopping by comparing quotes across hundreds of providers. At The Zebra, I create front end applications in React and Vue.js for our product team. I am responsible for implementing designs, building new features, and making continual improvements to our funnel experience. We focus on strict accessibility standards, performance, A/B testing, and maximizing conversions, while maintaining a user experience that makes the complex task of comparing insurance rates fast and simple. I am often responsible for managing tech initiatives on our Auto Funnel team, as well as mentoring lower-level developers.
