I'm a fourth-year honors student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), and I'm passionately pursuing a bachelor's degree in computer science. During my academic journey, I had the unique opportunity to study abroad at Reykjavik University (RU) in Iceland during Spring 2022.

My enthusiasm for web development took root in elementary school when I completed an online HTML and CSS course on Codecademy. It was during my time at UNL, however, that I delved deeper into the complexities of programming languages beyond the basics.

Through a combination of academic coursework, personal projects, and an internship at FarmAfield, I honed my skills in web development, utilizing the Django tech stack. Additionally, I gained experience in game development and graphic design through courses and extracurricular activities at UNL, RU, and Chase County High School (CCHS). My game development journey began with “Flappy Borbs” in high school, continued with “Minieval” during my undergraduate studies, and now includes collaboration with Mystic Rhoads Productions on my third project, “baldorf.”

As an attentive, organized, and forward-thinking individual, I consistently delivers results. My ability to work effectively in teams ensures that all members contribute meaningfully, fostering steady progress. Hailing from a family of farmers, I've learned the value of initiative and applied that to software development.

As I prepare to graduate from UNL in August 2023, I'm actively seeking a job in web development.
