I’m a software engineer living in San Francisco. I studied Design and Media Arts at UCLA, and learned how to code online between studio classes. As an undergrad student, I was fortunate enough to receive research funding to build out a piece of speech controlled design software, making basic design functionality accessible to users who cannot use a standard mouse/keyboard. Following graduation, I’ve been working at LinkedIn for the past few years, working on the web client as well as the API, most recently focusing on bringing realtime technologies to features like comments, reactions, and audio chat.

I’m interested in generative art, data visualization, learning new technologies, and working with others! Outside of work I like to hike, garden, and cook.
