A Little About Me


I'm a Chicago web developer with a passion for learning and building things.

I grew up in a suburb of Chicago and went to Villanova where I played baseball. I majored in Finance and double minored in Accounting and Marketing. After I graduated, I worked as an investment banking analyst in San Francisco where I discovered my passion for software and startups.

I love building things, I have a keen eye for things that can and should be done better, and I am fascinated by data and its potential to drive strategy and progress.
