Thank you for taking the time to visit my website! It's been an exciting journey arriving at the career of Software Development and being located in Chicago. I grew up on the island of Maui which I am eternally grateful for, not only because of its beauty, but because of the experiences I had living in such a unique and diverse location. Growing up I had many interests and hobbies, but as I got older I gravitated towards two main interestes - technology and music. After graduating High School, I went to the University of Oregon where I graduated with my Bachelors degree in Oboe Performance and went on to Indiana University to receive a Masters of Oboe Performance. After grad school I moved to Chicago to join the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, a two year program under the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
I first started learning about coding in 2017 after a friend told me about starting to code himself and it really interested me. Since then I have been learning slowly over the years, but really picked up pace during 2020 when I finished a Full Stack Development course. I was pleased to learn that the daily diligence, troubleshooting / problem solving skills and need to sort through and learn large amounts of material from my life as a musician very much coorelate to Software Developemt. I am very excited about my future in Software Development and look forward to hearing from you - let's make something meaningful!
