What was your first concert like?

My first concert was Christina Aguilera at the MN State Fair in 7th grade. It was very much like a genie in a bottle in that it released me far away from top-40 music. I found my happy place with indie jam bands, bluegrass and Dave (aka Dave Matthews Band).

What do you do for Snap?

As a front-end developer, I take the amazing designs and concepts created by our designers and bring them to life.  This means I have one foot in design and one foot in development and both hands on the keyboard. Once a client’s site is finalized and live, I also provide ongoing support to make sure everything stays as fresh as the day we built it.

What do you like most about your role?

I get to problem solve every day.  Whether it be finding a better way to solve a client’s business needs or just getting a mobile layout to display properly every time; I get to find solutions to complex problems.

What inspires you?

Innovation is what this industry is all about, it is how we got to where we are and how we are pushing forward. It’s that innovation where I draw my energy from. Every project is another opportunity to improve and find a creative solution.
