Well hello there,
It's Nice To Meet You!
Let's start!

About

“There are two kinds of people in the world: those who can extrapolate from incomplete data,"

Hey there! I'm a new grad from the University of California, Berkeley. I double majored in Computer Science and Statistics, and am searching for General Software Engineering roles. My interests lie in Web Development, Full Stack (Backend is super fun!), Databases, Data Science, and Machine Learning. This summer, I finished up my last class and was the Head TA for Computer Architecture. I spent the previous two summers as a Software Engineering Intern at Riviera Partners and MobiTV. I grew up in Port Arthur, Texas and enjoy breakdancing, video games, origami, and sports. I enjoy meeting new people, visiting new places, and bringing ideas to life through code. Below is my journey at Cal and why I chose Software Engineering!

  • Fall 2012 - Spring 2013

    Mechanical Engineering

    I entered Cal studying Mechanical Eng. and took intro level math, engineering, physics, chemistry, and programming courses. I found that I was more fascinated with the math and programming and switched to Applied Math!

  • Fall 2013 - Spring 2014

    Applied Mathematics

    After falling in love with Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra, I moved on to advanced courses. Though proofs and theorems were interesting, I found myself wanting something more "applied." Enter Statistics, prominent for solving many real world problems!

  • Fall 2014 - Fall 2015

    Statistics

    I found my niche in Stats, and it found a special place in my heart. I was intrigued with all you could do with data, and dived into statistical learning. As of Fall 2015, I have completed the Stats degree with a concentration in Applied Math. My lingering interest in coding and love for data drove me towards Computer Science!

  • Spring 2016 - Summer 2017

    Computer Science

    I got addicted to coding and couldn't get enough of my CS courses. Through all the projects, I grew an interest in web development, backend, databases, and building predictive models. I was mesmerized by the vast directions Computer Science could take you. In Summer 2017, I graduated with my Computer Science degree. I aspire to apply my knowledge and skills to create software that's fun to build and streams positivity into our lives!

Portfolio

Here are some of my latest projects.
