The human behind the code.
A farm raised, free-range designer & developer. A year ago I decided I wanted to do more with other than make things look really, really ridiculously good looking.
I freelanced as a web designer and developer until accepting a summer teaching position for a precollege program through The Flatiron School. Writing extensive notes for my lesson plans inspired the creation of this blog.

Octo & Amper
The Cats Behind the Code
Octo (short for Octothorpe, black) & Amper (Ampersand, tabby) were adopted from PAWS chicago a month after I finished Dev Bootcamp. These little fur balls have kept me company through long hours of freelance coding at home. They've also better at making bugs than catching them.
This blog is built using one of the most liberating blogging technologies; with Jekyll and hosted on Github pages with a custom domain slapped on it.
