"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou

❤ī¸đŸŽ¨ I love design and development. 📖📚 I value knowledge. 🕹ī¸đŸŽŽ Video games are my primary recreation. 🌲🐈 Plants and animals make me happy. ⌨ī¸âŒ¨ī¸ I build custom keyboards.

  • The phrase "intent vs impact" is of high importance to me.
  • I prefer the frank and direct approach and won't take it personally, but I understand and empathize that others might not like the direct approach.
  • I operate in a judgement-free zone.
  • Let's document things! Documentation benefits everyone.
  • My background in architecture adds a unique behavioral psychology element to my designs.
