Me with a city street in the background

Hello,

I'm Alana Kerr, or 脜ni for short. I'm a frontend software engineer with a desire to use tech for good. I was born on the island of Guam 聽馃尨聽 and have a background in design and illustration. After working as a graphic designer in NYC for 5 years, I made the leap into tech. Nothing gets me more excited than building, creating, and learning new technologies.
