About Me

10+ years transforming caffeine into lines of code.

I am a Sr Software Engineer currently working at Metal Toad, a Digital Transformation Agency, specialized in helping companies of all sizes to achieve desired business goals and outcomes.

A little about my experience: I started initially as a Graphic Designer and Front-end Developer circa 2006, creating websites and collaterals for small businesses in Southern California. My passion for everything Web steered me towards becoming a full stack developer.

On a more personal level, my family is my #1 passion — my handsome 7 year old son and my beautiful wife — but coding comes in a very close second place. When I’m not coding — or chasing my little one around — I enjoy spending my time listening to music on vinyl, drinking a nice cup of coffee, watching a Basketball on TV or enjoying the best Portland has to offer: drinking the best craft beers or enjoying a nice hike on one of the countless parks/waterfalls surrounding the city.
