Projects I've Made

These are larger programs I've written in my free time or as part of work. I don't make as many large projects so they're likely not as up-to-date as more recent code I've written - you can see that on my Github and CodePen pages.

Articles I've Written

Before becoming a programmer, I majored in journalism! My writing today is limited to different blog posts, but I've saved some of my favorite journalism articles from before.
