It's a Biography, Baby.
I’m a problem-solver. I’m happiest when I’m creating solutions that directly help someone, regardless of how “technical” that solution might be. Being challenged and encouraged to grow outside of my comfort zone really drives me. Coming from a background in Computer Science, I love fusing the analytical with the creative - combining development and design to make really kick-ass products, services, and processes for people.
I’m constantly learning. I thrive when I get to know something new or take a deep dive into a topic that I already know. As a voracious reader, I finished 60 books and read over 20k pages last year! On top of that, I dig deep into linguistics, typography, and transit systems in my free time. Don’t get me started on subways and trains, you won’t get me to shut up.
I’m a big ol’ extrovert. I get so much energy and joy from working with others, or even just talking to someone. I love getting to know others, understanding what drives them and helps them.
I’m a very musical person. I’m honestly always singing, playing, performing. I get so much satisfaction out of the collective unity experienced in making music with others. A lot of my time is spent singing in several ensembles (professionally and just for fun), and playing a smattering of stringed instruments - most recently picking up the lyre. Because why not?
I’m an activist. I hold a lot of causes close to my heart, especially environmental and queer issues. Being based in Nebraska, I’m constantly involved in legislative advocacy, education, and testimony - particularly when it comes to fighting for the rights of other LGBTQIA+ Nebraskans.
