Right now, I’m working as a UI Engineer at Microsoft. My work is focused on building tools for designers and engineers. Primarily I work tools and frameworks like React, TypeScript, JSS, Styled Components, Node.js, MongoDB and building micro services.

I've worked on building tools that connect workflows between designers and engineers between Figma documents and GitHub repos that focus on empowering each user to work in their own environment. Also, I've built tools for making local development with TypeScript a first class experience.

I've done research in embedding accessibility into components React for larger teams. The main project I'm working on right now is building large scale prototypes at the cross-section between Office, Edge and Windows Shell using React and MobX.

I work with a team of developers to distribute government leads to our clients. As a front-end developer, I work very closely with our UX team to actualize their intentions when building new features, and constantly working to improve the experience of our application for our clients. I work across a suite of large React applications in 4 or 5 micro-frontends and ship code to production on a regular basis. Since I joined Onvia, I've worked on a team focused full-time on development. Working alongside backend and full-stack developers, we focused our front-end stack to use React.js, Redux, Immutable.js, Flux, React Router and Sass.

I left at the end of 2017, after the company was aquired by Deltek for \$70M.
