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.
I attended New York University, graduating with a duel major in political science and broadcast journalism. Armed with a video camera and Final Cut Pro, my journalism buddies and I would take to the streets to shoot the happenings - and injustices - of New York City.
In the summer of 2014, a group of adventurous environmentalists and I traveled to the Jama-Coaque Ecological Reserve in Northwest Ecuador to research and learn with the nonprofit Third Millennium Alliance. My research project focused on water quality management and reforestation.
In August 2016, I joined Kevala Analytics as a full stack software engineer. The tech stack includes Django, OpenLayers, PostGIS, PostgreSQL, geoDjango, Heroku, and AWS.
I am a proponent of lifelong learning and can often be found digging into a new technology or dataset. My most recent endeavors include machine learning, large dataset analysis, and cloud computing.
