Born and raised in Mountain View, CA (Before google took over the town), I went to html summer camps at Stanford as a kid and I have always been messing around on computers. I attended college in San Francisco, and after college I moved to NYC to be closer to family. I started working with an architectural design firm and absorbed more and more of their IT and accounting workload, enabling the firm to let go of IT contracts and consolidate their backend needs.
I have focused mainly on React and Node while working for companies of all sizes. Startups getting traction (product changing by the minute) to enterprise (Largest Healthcare company in US). Like anything there is tradeoffs, I enjoy the smaller company experience where the team is more nimble and can adopt new technologies, and also enjoy the enterprise work where we have a million active monthly users and managing volume efficiently is paramount.
My coding style is writing predictable maintainable code with high % of test coverage. I leverage descriptive naming and uniform syntax/consistency across files and folder organization. If there is a lack of order when I land in a new code base, you will find me chipping away/refactoring for uniform structure in my downtime. I have refactored code bases where props are renamed multiple times during prop drilling, where nested ternaries had become the norm and css specificity had run amuck with 10,000+ loc css files. Working in large code bases, I feel strongly about not compromising on uniform syntax, uniform structure and descriptive naming. The goal is to be able to jump in get oriented add a feature/make the change, add tests and ship ship ship.
