I currently work remotely for a creative agency based in Brooklyn called Objectively, where we work with academic and research institutions to make knowledge more consumable, actionable, and impactful. I graduated from Dev Bootcamp in 2015, a coding program built on the premise of "building beautiful and meaningful things", something I really took to heart. After graduating from DBC, I volunteered for ScriptEd (now CodeNation), where I helped teach web development to a group of high school students. I was inspired by the students, and discovered an unexpected love for teaching.
Before becoming a developer, I spent eight years in the academic publishing world, working on textbooks for courses spanning ethnomusicology, music technology, and music education. My experience working with developers as a client to create companion websites to these textbooks inspired my career change, and has helped inform how I approach the material I work with.
When I am not in front of a computer, I am probably fermenting something, making broth, or hanging out with my cats.
