Coding can change the world.
I grew up as a journalist. Now I code. I see web applications as an engaging tool to inform and guide public decisions.
As a reporter and editor, I learned to use facts to help communities make important decisions and to help people cope in times of trauma.
Now, as a software engineer, I want to continue to work with projects that build on democratic principles. I want to help regular people engage in civic life. I want policymakers to understand community priorities and find solutions. I want to help build a stronger and more secure society.
