About Me

I'm not just building code; I'm crafting experiences that resonate

As a cross-functional Front-End Developer and UI Designer with 12 years of experience, I specialize in designing, architecting, developing, and deploying diverse user interfaces and enterprise web applications. I lead a team of web developers and designers at DISCO, a SaaS company specializing in AI-driven legal discovery technology. With a meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to user-centric design, I am always on a quest for growth, eager to embrace new technologies and solve real-world business problems. Formerly, I have worked with Apple and various agencies, delivering integrated web applications used globally by thousands of users, including Fortune 500 companies, multi-million dollar manufacturers, and state government agencies.

Self-taught and driven by an innate curiosity, I've cultivated a skill set that enables me to navigate the complexities of digital development with humble curiosity. My passion for technology is matched by my ability to lead teams with empathy and insight, fostering an environment where creativity and innovation thrive. Outside of work, my life is equally vibrant. My fiancรฉe, is a constant source of support and inspiration. This balance between my professional aspirations, personal interests, and the simple pleasures of life โ€” such as spending time with my poodle, Tico โ€” have shaped me into the well-rounded individual I am today.
