My name is Martha.

I build technology for creative expression and social good.

I have always been inspired by art, health, and social advocacy. As a software engineer specializing in the NERP stack, I love creating visually engaging and functionally efficient web applications.

Before I immersed myself in full time web development, I worked in performing arts administration with organizations such as The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, Galapagos Art Space, The World Science Festival and The Westside Theatre.

Nowadays, I am teaching myself Python and SASS, expanding technology to help inform and educate voters, and keeping Stevie Nips entertained. I also can't keep myself away from supporting uncanny circus, feeding my bibliophilia and discovering new music.

Want to talk about any of this?
