From an early age, I have been drawn to technology - specifically the internet. I love the idea of using code and visual design to create applications that can help others. As such, my transition into public service over the past five years has been extremely rewarding. I am driven by the opportunity to take on bigger, more impactful challenges, and hopefully, just maybe, leave my mark on the future of our country.
As a front end designer at 18F, I'm using my experience to help make government websites more usable and enjoyable for all citizens.
As a native of Arizona, moving across the country was quite an adventure for me and my family - but we wouldn't change a thing. Well except maybe the cold winters... I don't know if I'll ever adjust to those!
Became the founder of PIOpost, a web based service that allows public safety agencies to easily publish updates to various social media platforms - keeping citizens more informed and involved.
My first exposure to public service, and one I will never forget. As a designer/developer, and advisor to all things technical, I was able to make meaningful changes that directly impacted citizens.
An introduction to enterprise level web application front end design. I gained valuable experience and knowledge that opened many doors into other opportunities within the web development industry.
I'm an Arizona State Sun Devil. Having already established myself as a web designer, I received my bachelor's degree in another interest of mine - Justice and Social Inquiry.
At age 12, and fresh off of reading a stack of web design books, I developed an HTML reference website to teach others the basics of making their own webpages.
