Hello! My name is Gerlin and I enjoy creating things that live on the internet. I'm a self taught developer, who switched from a career in IT, and for as long as I can remember I've always had an interest in tech — While assisting clients in fixing and guiding them with programs got me more interested in buidling them to make better experiences.

Fast forward to today I've had the privelege of working for a Digital Management Platform as a software engineer CO-OP — Contributing to civic tech group to be able help, and improve the way goverment and community organizations serve the public by using technology. And was selected for a fellowship with a focus on being job ready using tools,resources, and mentors to grow my potential as a developer. While also helping to bridge the gap between the technology industry and under-represented individuals.
