Getting to Know You Q&A:

Q: What are you most excited about / looking forward as a new KLAS developer?

A: Much of my life has been spent serving various communities and trying to develop tools that enable people to do more. I love to pursue the promise of technology where it allows us to do things that we couldn’t do before, do them more efficiently, or do things in new ways that were previously thought impossible. Technology has the power to transform lives, and being able to contribute my small part to that gives me purpose.

A: Somewhere I haven’t been before, I love to explore.

Q: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

A: Turtle, had her since I was in elementary school, her name is Urtle (give me a break on the name, I was in elementary school).
