Lily from Seattle { In NYC }
Engineer. Artist. Designer.

About Me

I am a lifelong Seattleite and Ada Developers Academy graduate who’s excited to continue my career in tech after relocating from Seattle to New York City.

I am a highly motivated developer with an analytic background and exceptional front-end skills currently seeking a position where I can develop as a full stack engineer. Because I am a visual person, in the past I have gravitated towards front-end development. I enjoy using code to present information visually, and creating user facing tools and products. Moving forward, I want to broaden my skill set and move more fluidly throughout the stack. I have extensive experience with Ruby on Rails as well as several JavaScript frameworks including React and Angular JS. I’m looking for a position where I can continue to develop these skills.
