ABOUT

Who am I?

I am a software engineer and an active open-source contributor based in San Francisco Bay Area. I am also a contributing tech writer at ITNEXT publishing weekly posts on software engineering topics.

As a programmer, I find myself completely absorbed in the work whether it be creating apps from scratch (like a Minecraft session) or diving into a codebase (like a Myst session).

I attained my BS from University of Colorado and my MS from UC Davis.

TECHNICAL SKILLS

LANGUAGES
I code primarily in Ruby and JavaScript. I had extensive experience with MATLAB in college.
FRONT END
I have deployed intricate apps featuring either React/Redux or jQuery, and have styled several projects with CSS3 and Bootstrap.
BACK END
I have an in-depth understanding of and experience with Rails that allows me to pick up other server-side frameworks quickly. I also enjoy writing up complex SQL queries.
