I'm a software engineer and web designer based in Austin, Texas. I'm twenty-one years old and a third-year Computer Science major at the University of Texas at Austin. I have a passion for creating beautiful, innovative, responsive websites and user-friendly applications. I started programming when I was thirteen; finding new ways to challenge myself and learn new concepts. Over the years, I've been exposed to diverse programming challenges and created programs in numerous languages.
In 2010, I built a social media marketing platform for MySpace that attracted hundreds of thousands of users #MakeMySpaceGreatAgain. I’ve developed various projects involving video game automation, digital music software, and large-scale web applications. In 2013, I built an integration tool that seamlessly connects a popular DJ controller with the most popular DJing software in the world. It's plug-and-play and enables full control over the music with easy to use effects: all on a low-cost platform.
Simplicity is superior. I find beauty in the small things and try to emphasize the subtleties that make a huge difference in appearance. In the summer of 2014, I interned with Elevate as an Application Development Intern and I worked on RISE. Last summer, I was a Software Engineering Intern with Visa and I worked on CyberSource applications. I love working with user interfaces and front-end applications, but enjoy full-stack development as well. I strongly support social coding and open-source software.
In my free time I enjoy working on open-source projects, watching movies, kayaking, spending time outdoors, and shooting sports. I'm a music, film, and video game fanatic, and I design websites and applications as both a hobby and a career. I'm currently pursuing certifications in Information Security and Mobile Computing from the University of Texas at Austin along with my undergraduate program. I'm currently involved with the Longhorn Startup Lab entrepreneurial program.
