If someone had told me years ago that I would be on the cover of a magazine, create a mind-controlled quadcopter, help develop a native iOS app for a company, and land an internship at a tech giant all before my senior year of college, I most likely would not have believed them.
Despite having no programming experience prior to college, I managed to stand out as an honors student in UConn’s Computer Science and Engineering program. I enjoyed inspiring students of all ages such as at UConn's Open House events and the annual Connecticut Invention Conventions.
Upon graduation, I went on to develop tools and workflows to ease the hassle of building, testing, and shipping code at Connecticut's first ever unicorn. After getting 2.5 years of experience under my belt, I went on to join my friends at the world's largest CDN on the platform engineering team to develop global orchestration and deployment solutions for our company's next generation private cloud.
