Hi, I'm Brock.

I'm a full stack web developer. Currently, I'm at the creating applications that make the University of Arizona a better place to learn and work.

I enjoy doing deep dives for the best solutions, whether I am orchestrating containers in AWS, writing an API in Django, or building an application in React.

In the past, I have been a teaching assistant for the University of Arizona's web development bootcamp and a freelance web developer.

When I'm not coding, I prefer to be in a hammock or planning a backpacking trip into the wilderness.
