About Me? I'm Jewel.

Headshot of Jewel smiling.
As a community-taught and grown Software Engineer, I value team work, collaboration and communication. As a developer, I work to bridge creative ideation with brand and web development goals. I code to find solutions for your web presence and brand recognition problems. As a marketing and communications professional, I provide copywriting and copyediting services. I'm the child of immigrants from Liberia, West Africa, also home to all of my favorite cuisines in this world. When I'm not coding, I'm boxing (on the bag), hiking, cooking or enjoying a favorite TV series.
