Vancouver, BC

Software developer. Supporter of bad-ass women. Definitely not a morning person.

ABOUT

Check out my resume

I am a frontend developer with a Computer Engineering degree from UBC and 4 years of industry experience under my belt. I believe that effective communication and storytelling are at the cornerstone of all successful conversations, partnerships, and businesses. As a highly empathetic person, I love gaining a deeper understanding of people by hearing their nuanced life stories. My current focus is finding projects that integrate social issues and human connections with technology. I want to take a closer look at how we can leverage technology to foster connections as opposed to providing a space to disconnect.

Other interests include: women's rights, long hikes over mountainous terrain, big cups of coffee, and fluffy dogs.
