Why I do it
I am naturally curious. It's why thinking abstractly is so enjoyable to me. My curiosity allows me to quickly grasp big picture software architecture and craft code that fits.
Web applications are developed everyday that reshape our relationship with data and enhance decision-making. Contributing creatively to this effort drives me. Beyond the joy of rapidly prototyping ideas with modern web tools, it is exciting to be creating via a medium whose impact is so widespread.
I strive to further develop my ability to engineer intuitive APIs that deliver data to cross-platform frontends. I'm always looking to expand my toolkit. If I'm not growing, I'm dead and a dead me is waaay less effective at producing awesome software.
