About

About

Experienced software developer, with a focus on front-end web technologies. I am currently enjoying working with all manner of tools in the React ecosystem: React, Redux, Reselect, Recompose, redux-thunk, redux-saga, React Native, ES6/ESNext. As a self-taught developer, I am highly self-motivated and driven, and love to take on technical challenges and solve business problems for clients. I also read a lot, all the time. Whether it's development-related blog posts, or technical answers on Stack Overflow, or news articles, I am constantly learning and using this knowledge to improve my craft. I enjoy working on teams that are highly collaborative and prioritize communication over process, fast-paced environments, and working with modern tools and technologies that keep up with the pace of innovation in the industry.
