Background

Summary

Hi! I’m Natalie and I’m a software developer. I believe programming is the perfect combination of creativity, imagination, logic, and analytics. I love being able to turn my visions into working prototypes that make the world an easier place to navigate. Aside from coding, crafting DIY projects is my jam! (Pun intended, I sometimes make jam.) I also enjoy vigorously hiking around the Bay Area, trying out new boba shops, and planning surprise parties/dates for my loved ones.
