hi there!

I'm Kai, an Oakland-based full-stack web developer with a background in RoR and Node.js. I recently graduated from General Assembly's Web Development Immersive and began working as a software engineer for Earnest. I'm also an illustrator, a poet and an educator. Before WDI, I was designing & defining processes and standards for the quality control team at Minted, wrangling Google Spreadsheets into little project management tools. I've always been the person people come to for answers, because I'm always curious enough to go find them. That curiosity is a big part of what lead me to WDI, and what makes me so happy to be coding every day. Scroll down to see some of my GA projects, and check out my github to see what else I've been up to!

> de Novo. A RESTful Rails and AngularJS app that allows users to track major life changes with video (via the YouTube API), photos, and text. Users can also search, follow and message other users. <see the code>
> Audiofile. A RESTful Rails app that allows users to upload, share, and upvote audio; create snippets of soundclips; search for user content; make playlists and view a map of user activity worldwide. Built by a team of 4, I implemented the search and playlist features, as well as general bug fixes and managing our timeline and Github merges. <see the code>
