I grew up in Arizona and had a lot of time to explore and create. I became deeply curious about storytelling and digital media, and through high school I made a lot of documentaries and narrative films. It wasn't until college that I learned about Computer Science and the ways I could use it to solve new and interesting problems. During my time at Brown University, I have taken classes ranging from Machine Learning and Algorithms, to Programming Languages and Distributed Computer Systems. Outside of class, I've done a bit of Computational Biology and Natural Language Processing research, and during my summers I've worked as a Software Engineer intern at Johnson & Johnson and Amazon. Outside of work, I love to travel, try new coffee, and learn new languages (currently learning Russian).
I'm currently working on a mobile app called Emit. This August I will be joining Amazon Web Services as a Software Development Engineer in Boston, working on distributed file storage at Elastic File System.
