I was recently part of an unexpected massive layoff at Weedmaps, and am currently Looking for new opportunities.
I received my degree in Computer Graphics Design back in 2005. It turns out I didn't really enjoy designing as a full time job so I set out to become the best web developer I could.
My first "real" job was for a marketing company, where I learned Wordpress and was quickly building custom themes and plugins for clients. After a few years I decided to get into freelancing. I started a small software company with a few friends where I quickly grew into becoming a full-stack Ruby on Rails developer. I continued freelancing for about five years, all through the booming evolution of front-end frameworks.
Due to some painful, life changing events, I decided to move from Washington state in 2016, back my home in California. I have been working at Weedmaps every since, where I work with amazing people building remarkable products affecting positive change in the cannabis industry.
My focus is empowering my teammates to succeed. I love CSS, React, as well as roller skating, video games, and dad jokes.
