I love learning all sorts of new things—not only in technology but in life—which is why I included photos from some of my disparate hobbies. But more than just learning, I strive for deeper understanding: the why and how.
This principle has guided me through myriad technical disciplines. I've been asked which part of the stack is your favorite? I can't say I have a favorite. I love to build and be a part of the creative process, and each discipline fascinates me.
I've found that firsthand experience with many programming paradigms and languages enhances creative problem solving across the board.
I take pride in my ability to assimilate into existing mature systems, quickly learn to speak the lingua franca, and provide meaningful contributions fast.
