About


I'm a Software Developer at Zen Planner where develop web applications using Java, Spring Boot, SQL, and Javascript. I'm also an experienced Android developer. In my increasingly scarce free time, I develop websites and Android apps. My most recent app is Count the Dots, a game that's based on subitizing. I also maintain ConfessIt, an app for Catholics, with a 4.5 star rating after more than 550 reviews and 28,000 downloads.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Colorado School of Mines with a degree in computational and applied mathematics; I subsequently completed a Master's of Education at the University of Denver as part of the Denver Teacher Residency. After a short stint of full-time teaching, I returned to the field of software engineering at SpotX, where I worked for 3 years before joining Zen Planner.
