About Me

I'm a former musician currently working at Amazon as a software engineer, bringing creative solutions to modern technological challenges.

I'm interested in all things tech and have worked on projects from embedded systems, to big data & machine learning, all the way to standard web & mobile development. I'm also currently an independent consultant at block.one. I pride myself on my ability to pick up new tech quickly, so if you've got a project that doesn't involve one of these skills, don't hesitate to get in touch.

Prior to focusing on more project based software, I competed in Codeforces and CodeChef competitions using the C++ programming language and the handle sjkelleyjr. While I certainly wasn't the best, I feel this experience greatly shaped who I am as a software engineer.
