Projects

I'm a product engineer who enjoys contributing to projects that elevate people whether that's increasing access to e-books with NYPL-Simplified, creating tools for Meetup's community organizers or sending curated content to Jopwell's diverse job-seekers at scale.

Some technologies I enjoy working with are ReactJS, JAMStack (JavaScript, APIs + Markup), GraphQL and more. My interest in the React ecosystem led me to launch React Ladies, a community for women and non-binary ReactJS developers.

If you'd like to learn more about my day-to-day engineering work, aside from the projects below, then view my resume or GitHub.

One of the first organizer tools I contributed to at Meetup as a Full Stack Engineer was the Meetups at WeWork instant reservation system which enabled eligible organizers to instantly reserve venue space at WeWork locations globally on the Meetup website.
