About

I’m a software engineer and designer based in San Francisco, California. My focus for the last five years has been building modern web sites and web applications for small companies, as well as freelance work.

I come from a family of graphic designers who taught me to love design and typography. Previously, I studied math and physics. Feel free to reach out, I’m always open for interesting projects.
