About Me

I am a full stack software engineer committed to leveraging technology for social good.

I like figuring out how things work, and then how to make them work better. I am an inquisitive, enterprising individual who enjoys solving problems both big and small. I care deeply about the world and its environment, and believe that technology can transform how we interact with and impact it.

I am an NYU alum and Washington, DC, native with a background in nonprofit research and program support. I recently graduated from Hackbright Academy's Software Engineering Fellowship, where I became proficient in full stack web development and computer science fundamentals.

From increasing efficiency, productivity, and awareness, I believe software allows for a more sustainable future, and I hope to build tools to help move us there.

Will you join me?
