Not your average developer

Technical and Creative

I have thirteen years of professional experience as a Software Engineer at industry-leading companies in the San Francisco Bay Area.

At Lyft, my team built a Simulation Platform that allows the business to handle thousands of rides per minute during our busiest moments. At Teespring, I led a team that created the online store platform which enables merchandise sales on YouTube. At Onelogin, I built an identity provider which enables mobile app single sign-on.

Unlike many developers who focus solely on technical ability, I am a deeply creative person with a passion for good design and captivating storytelling. My experiences with film, design, and other creative outlets fuel my curiosity and inventiveness as an engineer.
