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 and a half years of experience under my belt, I went on to join my friends at the world's largest CDN on the platform engineering team.
