What feels like a lifetime ago, when I was pursuing a degree in writing, software engineering was nowhere on my radar. A friend who knew me better than I knew myself saw that I needed to get my feet wet in the world of web development, and the rest is history. Nearly 20 years later, I can't imagine doing anything else.
I've spent over half my development career in the Ecommerce agency world, and I've done it all: Highly complex frontend and backend coding, scoping client requirements, overseeing product development, and mentoring other developers. My background in writing and communication has come in handy, too, as I've inevitably ended up on the front lines of standards development, process documentation and training in whatever role I find myself!
