Chris Rodriguez

I am a full-stack software developer with usability design experience and accessibility expertise.

Some dev experience includes Node, JavaScript, TypeScript, React, HTML/CSS, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Passport, and REST APIs.
I've worked with Federal Government organizations, higher education, non-profits, and private companies big and small.
I currently manage a small team of dedicated individuals and love it.
