I’m a web developer who spent 10 years as a front page journalist before learning software engineering with the Flatiron School. In my current role at a digital marketing firm, I'm building sites for a wide base of clients. I'm updating custom WordPress themes and plugins using PHP and styling using Sass. I'm also using React, the WordPress API and the NationBuilder API to build internal reporting and metrics apps.
I became very familiar with explaining technical concepts in real-world terms during my time as an online technical coach for Flatiron School students, most of whom come to software engineering from non-technical backgrounds.
