About Steven


I am a maker, in the journey of growing in the craft of software development. I strongly believe that my energy and experience working in diverse teams makes me a good fit for many opportunities out there. I am curious about new technologies, I try to break them apart, analyze them and piece them back together.

Located in New York, looking for opportunities where I will be able to keep learning my craft while helping my future team achieves its goals. I like companies that are transparent, creative, funky and supportive where people are proud of the work they do. If that sounds like someplace you know, get in touch!
