About Me

I have always wanted to learn everything about anything, and I decided I want anything to be the endless space of software engineering. Software engineering has been on my mind since high school - I wanted to be an engineer to solve problems and create new things. In college, I chose to major in mechanical engineering to work on robots. I led a combat robotics team during my 4 years, and found that I enjoyed the software and automation side of robotics. Since then, I’ve been figuring out a path into software engineering.

I took an unconventional route after college, choosing to experience the work force outside of engineering. I wasn’t sure where my career was heading, but I decided working as a recruiter would help me gain perspective on the technical industry as a whole. My favorite part of being a recruiter was talking to engineers all day about their careers and current projects. Recruiting for over a year brought my fascination back to software engineering, and I had finally saved enough money to continue the pursuit of software in a bootcamp.

Through Flatiron School and my own projects, I’ve built full-stack applications in Ruby on Rails, React, Redux, and Node.js. I’ve worked with multiple database technologies, and I have created secure user authorization. My projects are all hosted on Heroku, and the code bases are public on my github. I continue everyday to learn new concepts that can be transferred to any tech stack. I'm currently looking for a full-time job, internship or project and I am available immediately.
