What am I up to?

I make sites beautiful and useable

I have focus in bringing designs to life in code, and finding ways to further improve the user experience. I am currently a collaborator with Chakra UI, helping to improve a low-level design system component library that focuses on A11y for React and Vue. Open source is my jam! 🤘

Where did I come from?

I am a classically-trained musician of over 15 years 🎺 striving for a career change into web development. My skills in music involve critically-thinking, problem solving, and adaptability which provide a high-quality transposition into gaining speed on a project or a team, in any stack that is required. Supply the tools and I will adapt!

    Power Contributor

    I became a primary contributor to in September 2022, helping them migrate their UI from Styled Components to Chakra UI. I worked as a liaison between the core teams, migrating components, reviewing PRs, auditing migrations and accessibility, and integrating StorybookJS into their workflow for the new Design System.

    I had frequent communication with the lead developer, designer, and the rest of the team, which helped ensure the site's aesthetics and usability met expectations. I was also honored to receive an Impact Gift from the Ethereum Foundation as recognition for my contributions.
