Growing up I was a natural explorer and inventor, playing with technology, tearing old appliances apart, reading everything I could get my hands on and creating new products was normal entertainment for me. Many 12 year olds dream of being sports stars, firefighters, rock stars, etc: I only ever wanted to be an engineer.
I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a Computer Science degree in December 2016. My interests are in building web applications, scalabilitiy, operations, and I'm a continuous learner.
Outside of work I enjoy lots of hobbies including:
- Cooking(and of course eating)
- AT&T Tech Valley Civic App Challenge Honourable Mention for Eventy
- YHack 2014: Best Use of Pebble SDK Award and Craziest Hack by ThinkGeek award. Viewable here on Challenge Post
- 2015 AT&T Tech Valley Civic App Challenge Announces Winners
- BookBub Built in Boston
- Hack Diversity: Automated testing strategies: a software engineer’s competitive edge
