I’m a software developer living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and I work on big WordPress websites and design systems at Penske Media Corporation.
In addition to my job, I facilitate the weekly meetings for the WordPress Core CSS focus, where we are working on a large scale CSS audit and an ongoing initiative to revamp the WordPress admin color schemes. I’m excited to become more involved with WordPress.
Apart from my work in tech, I love to run, bike and generally be outside. I’m learning Spanish, I draw monsters and create zines about a variety of topics, and I volunteer with racial justice initiatives in my home city of Pittsburgh.
I write about personal and tech-related topics.
And at this point, I am getting close to 10 years of content! Here are some recent posts.
