I am a fullstack web developer from Akron, Ohio. I design, build, and maintain the front end elements on web applications. I am also teach Python to students of all ages at Coding with Kids.

Throughout my coding journey I've accomplished several things including:

  • created the Disney Codes Challenge, a coding challenge designed to help developers begin a habit of coding more projects.
  • collaborated with other developers in the tech community to create resources that help others reach their coding goals.

In addition to my tech experience, I taught students academic skills at different schools in Stark County, Ohio and at Sylvan Learning for 9 years. I designed and differentiated curriculum to fit individual learning styles and regularly assessing student progress.


Web Design

I create high quality designs that match a business's look and feel. I work with clients to get the branding just right from the first meeting to the final design comp.

Web Development

I take a design comp and quickly convert it into a pixel perfect website. I can also take a client's existing site and give it an up to date makeover.


I teach coding concepts to new developers and answer questions they have about learning to code. I help them create a plan to accomplish their coding goals.
