Hi there!

I'm Alicia and I use software to
build benevolently.

Two things motivate me: creating & helping others.

I am a developer because I'm inspired by the scale at which software can improve people's lives and I want to contribute. When I'm not building people-first apps, you'll find me exploring new places or reinventing familiar ones.

Ask me how.

My Toolkit

I'm experienced in this stack, but am always eager to learn the best tool for the job.
