About

I am a full-stack software developer, who has worked in several start-ups in the San Francisco Bay Area. After taking a brief break from software to finish my Master’s, I will be finishing my Masters of Arts in Human Geography in August at the University of British Columbia. I am interested in applying my software acumen to modern environmental problems, as sustainability in agriculture was the focus of my Master’s thesis.

I completed my bachelor’s and a Fulbright year in mathematics before moving into software development in San Francisco. I worked with several companies on technical problems that ranged across programming stacks. At Zephyr Health, I worked extensively with Java 8 and PostgreSQL to build data pipelines that processed millions of records of healthcare data. At Pared, I used Javascript -- NodeJS and ReactJS -- to contribute to two web apps targeted to restaurateurs and restaurant employees. At Nerdwallet, I used ReactJS, NodeJS, and Python with Flask on web applications targeted to improve the financial health and knowledge of consumers. I love taking complex requirements and implementing them in a clean, modular, stable, and efficient manner. I am comfortable with the changing requirements and dynamic conditions present in small, but growing, companies.
