I am a software developer who has worn most of the hats available in the software development lifecycle. I have worked to create original designs, as a frontend implementer of designs, as a developer responsible for implementing full stack applications, and worked to create APIs to be consumed by other developers from the backend. I communicate well: in person, in documents, and online. I have done documentation, and QA, assessments of accessibility and usability. I like to help create excellent software that helps people solve problems.
