About Me

"Singer-Codewriter"

I moved to Nashville in 2005 to pursue a life as a songwriter and recording artist. After 13 years of making music and touring the country, I began to explore other creative outlets and became fascinated by software development. After doing some independent study in HTML/CSS/JS, I decided to formalize my education by attending Nashville Software School, staying on as an assistant teacher post-graduation. For the past year, I've worked in an agile, team-oriented culture at Change Healthcare as a Quality Engineer, developing my skills in automated and manual end-to-end testing.
