I love to learn and help others learn. With a background in psychology, UX design, and over a year of programming experience under my belt, I'm eager to join a startup determined to make the world a better place with the help of code! I'm deeply analytical, curious, and I love a challenging problem and growing daily.

YMDb is a cinephile hobbyist site for people that love making lists, film discussion, and film exploration. The site is meant to be a minimalist competitor to sites like Mubi and Letterboxd that appeals to a nerdier audience. The purpose is to allow people to state their movie preferences through their Top Movie List while giving them the opportunity to compare their taste in movies to other members of the YMDb community. The site incentivizes list making and film discussion by utilizing well-thought out limitations that make users more deliberate in how they chose films for their one and only list, which they can name and describe in the description section however they like. There will be a YMDb Top Movies List that aggragates film rankings from all user lists to make an overall YMDb community ranking, similar to what has. The average ranking of films will also be viewable from their page as well as the rank in the most recent user lists the film was added to.
