A self-taught software engineer, I am passionate about learning and implementing stable, modern code. I’ve been active in various volunteer organizations, serving as team lead for Code for San Francisco’s Website and Tools Team, facilitating the Node.js Website Working group for over 6 months, and spearheading Brigadehub, a proposed CMS for Code for America volunteer brigades.

I am an avid advocate for Open Source, am building a new documentation standard for OSS projects, I’ve published numerous active NPM modules, and am constantly looking for more projects to chip in on. I know where I got my start, so I strive to help new-comers to the development world get their bearings, while trying to push for an increased awareness of the social and civic impact of coding. I know that code can’t solve everything, but I intend to use my skills the best I can to help others.

I started working on a brigade-specific CMS, which I called brigadehub. This CMS, in my view, was to replace and consolidate all of the automatable tasks of the brigade…
