Skills

I love to wear multiple hats. I have a diverse range of skills and I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty.

Full Stack Developer

Ever since college, I acquired a deep love for web application development. My skills include Ruby on Rails, SQLite, PostgreSQL, API integration, Web application architecture, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, Javascript, JSON, jQuery, and AngularJS.

Entrepreneurship

My passion is working with startups. Whether its creating a startup, raising money, consulting early stage, working in a startup incubator, or simply connecting with the vibrant Denver entrepreneurial scene, I've been there and done it!

Finance

Right out of school, I was a financial underwriter with Cigna corporation. My rookie year, I won 'Best Underwriter of the Year' within my financial division. I specialize in risk analysis including macro and micro variable research.


Project Management

The most satisfying part of any project is appreciating all it took before reaching the finish line. I've done project, management for web application development, wireframing, UX design, operations, marketing, and real estate development.

Marketing

When it comes to creating phenomenal marketing strategies, I first ensure a solid understanding of the customer with market research, followed up with identifying the best channels and benchmarking ROIs with key performance indicators.

Real Estate Development

Having helped Chiplotle Corporate build out new stores in Northeast America & Canada, and having helped Custom Caves LLC streamline their home remodeling process, I have experience in both residential and commerical real estate development.

    A Little About Me

    I've lived in Denver pretty much all my life and I absolutely love it here! My parents deserve the credit for teaching me how to be tenacious, ambitious, and really work hard for something. I believe in keeping an open mind and remembering to enjoy life.

    My Hobbies

    Beware: He Who Has No Hobbies

    Taking advantage of the Rocky Mountains, I love snowboarding and hiking. During the summer, I enjoy playing a some sloshball. That wraps up just in time for an intense fantasy football season in the fall. You're looking at the 2014 fantasy champion!

    What's Next

    Perhaps a Shiba Inu...

    I love dogs with a passion and I'm thinking about getting a Shiba Inu. Other than that, just focusing on making sure we appreciate the people we have in our lives and practicing my coding skills!
