About Me

Creativity is my biggest passion. I used to watch my mother draw and became interested. I grew up drawing frequently, then found an interest in music. I started playing the saxophone, then learned record and engineer audio on my own. I've collaborated with musicians online from around the world. I also started learning web development and, more recently, picked up photography because it was something I had always wanted to do, but never had the means to do it. From photo editing and design to technology and music, I love being able to create things that make others happy. I used to work as an Orthodontic Lab Technician where I made fixed and removable appliances. I then moved to the digital department doing dental CAD work for making clear aligners and using the software to align teeth using the dental anatomy that I learned on the job. I love learning new things and have learned a lot of new skills in my current role. I learned how to use Microsoft Excel, specifically writing formulas and utilizing VBA. I've learned to use Bluebeam software to do takeoffs that I then use to estimate the cost and price of custom products such as large scale aluminum planters, benches, and shade structures.

Ideal Workplace Values

I've always wanted to be able to work autonomously while also being able to just create or solve problems (kinda like a puzzle). I would also like to work where mental health is very much understood. Just being seen as a person and acknowledged means a lot to me. Knowing my efforts don't go unnoticed. I want to be able to know I can be myself, be vulnerable and not constantly be told it's a business and that my personal life needs to be separate (work will always affect your personal life and vice versa). Also, working for a company that pays attention to the economical side of things matters. I don't want the typical place that only gives 4% raises, doing the bare minimum to pay employees who need to feed their families and to survive. Fair compensation is one of the most important things when looking for a job.
