developer & designer

about

Hi, I’m Andrea but you can call me Andy. 👋 I like using code and design to tell stories in innovative ways. I've been coding ever since I was 10 and found the HTML/CSS tutorials on Neopets.com and I love learning more every day.

Currently, I’m a data and graphics journalist at the L.A. Times. I design and develop pages to help make stories more engaging. I also teach an introductory coding class at USC.
