About Me

After growing up with dead zones in Hawaii, I want to make web apps that work offline and load fast. I’ve worked on Progressive Web App support in Microsoft Edge and Firefox for Android, and I’m a maintainer for the Rollup JavaScript bundler. Previously, I worked on web projects for Google Chrome and Yelp.

Some of my side projects have been featured in Washington, DC and outlets such as CSS Tricks, Google Developers, web.dev, the Star-Advertiser and Hawai’i Public Radio. I also speak at conferences like CascadiaJS and JSConf Budapest.

I started programming in secondary school and enjoyed it so much I’m still doing it! In my spare time, I perform improv and search for geocaches with my partner.

Below is my resume, and I hope you enjoy exploring my site. If you’d like to get in touch or if you have questions about my work, don’t hesitate to contact me.
