About Me

I became interested in computer programming while taking a course at City College of San Francisco. The goal was to write a few scripts to automate a task and I was very intrigued! I have continued on the journey within software development ever since.

Living in the Bay Area has opened up a world of creativity and passion for coding. I have had the honor and opportunity to provide mentorship for several types of organizations. It has been wonderful to be involved in providing support of developing skills and helping individuals feel empowered and more confident. I look forward to serving others and also getting a chance to help others find their own love of coding.

Imagination is not the talent of some people, but the health of every person.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
