About

I'm a senior web developer, cloud infrastructure specialist, and part of the team at Mighty in the Midwest, a digital design and technology company headquartered in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.

I started developing with Craft CMS in 2014 and have used it to launch several tens of websites.

I'm often prioritizing business thinking, long-term sustainability, and systems design.
