I am a passionate, independent learner with a talent for writing clean, maintainable code and building elegant user experiences. My background as a professional violinist and an entrepreneur has given me the skills to bring creative solutions to hard problems. I am currently working as a software engineer at Decipher Technology Studios in Alexandria, VA, where I'm building UI's for Decipher's flagship product, Grey Matter, as well as an open source UI component library to support projects across the company.
Although I work in tech full time I am still active in the DC arts community. rogue collective, founded in 2014, is a string ensemble that focuses on interdisciplinary collaboration and improvisation and performs regularly in the DMV area. I also photograph weddings and portraits through my photography business, Kaitlin Jane Photography.
I'm currently living in the Petworth neighborhood of Washington D.C. with my girlfriend and two kitties. In my spare time I like to cook delicious food, go on hikes, and play my nintendo Switch :)
