Fable Turas, Software Developer in Portland, Oregon

My best is always pushed to be a little better.

I’m a Software Engineer: a full stack developer with high personal accountability for outcomes and leadership ability. Adept at writing clean, dry, organized code. Excited by the prospect of new problems to solve and new technologies to learn. I never reject a better solution that brings about more efficiency or a cleaner resolution.
