About Me

  • personLife

    Originally from the United States, I'm currently based in Colombia in the heart of the coffee region. When I'm not working on projects I enjoy watching soccer and just simple things like going to the park with my family or going on short trips.

  • thumb_upSpecialty

    There are so many developers out there, you might be wondering what makes me special? Coming from a business background, I understand both the tech side and business side of projects. I enjoy building tech solutions to solve your business problems or make your idea a reality. I'm learning every day, love challenges, learning new technologies, and take pride in finishing projects with success and efficiency.
