From an early age I have been fascinated with the art and science of creating awesome software for the internet.
I began my journey as a graphic designer; in middle school I began designing the UI/UX landing pages and branding guides for small startups. By the time I was entering university, I was contracted by my 2 favorite comapanies (the NBA and NFL), and my work was seen by millions of people monthly. Always interested in the intersection of software and design and their applications in business, I acquired my bachelor of science in computer science with a minor in business administration from Loyola Marymount University. Along the way I gained a wealth of knowledge from professionals in 3 amazing internships.
I now work full time as a full stack software engineer near Culver City, California. I also occasionally freelance for a few of my favorite clients, and usually have a side project that I'm coding at any given time. In the future I hope to be an intermediary between engineering, business, and design teams where I can bridge the communication gap that I believe all-too-often exists.
When I'm not coding of working on my other projects, you can usually find me playing tennis, basketball, or any other sport. In extended periods of time off I enjoy backpacking between hostels in far-flung corners of the world. In the past 2 years I've traveled to 18 countries and have many plans for more. I enjoy spending my time, both in the office and out, with impassioned and positive friends. If this sounds like you, I'd love to meet up!
