Decision Matrix – A Free Tool to Help with those Tough Decisions
Get to know me
I am from Phoenix, AZ but I have been living in Japan since 2010 where I worked mainly as an English teacher. Living in Japan has been a unique and interesting opportunity that has really helped me grow individually and better appreciate the world we all share.
I love learning new things and am currently studying Python, Golang (Google Go), AI, Julia and photography. I have a professional background in web development and programming.
I am moving back to the US in the fall of 2020 where I hope to apply my technical knowledge in a challenging and rewarding work experience.
In my free time I enjoy designing art in Photoshop, playing video games and developing various applications for web and mobile devices. Got work for me? Connect with me and let’s get started on your next project.
