Professional title:

Senior Software Engineer

What do you do?

I inspire people adverse to math and computer science to learn programming and to see themselves as programmers.


As a child, I hated math and anything I deemed related to math. As a young designer/developer, I avoided aspects of programming that I deemed too "computer science-y", too close to math. In my late 20s, I realized that computer science is not what I thought it was, that math is not what I thought it was, and that I actually LOVE both of them. I want to make sure others know the truth!
