Terra Roush

Full-Stack Developer

  Nashville, TN, USA

I am a resourceful creative. I find joy in making anything from dinner to a garden bed. For the last ten years, I focused my energies on hairdressing and people. Before that, I studied  and practiced Art and Design. My switch to programming has been exciting and surprising. Making something, where once there was nothing, is the greatest fun!
