A Cliffsnotes on My Life

I am a 4th year attending Georgia Tech where I major in Computer Science with a concentration in Information Internetworks and Media. A few of my hobbies include: reading things with words, listening to podcasts, petting random dogs, and visual art.

I study computer science because I find it to be a hybrid form of art. I use logic to figure out a solution to a problem and I use creativity to choose the best way to implement a solution. I wrote an article discussing why creativity is critical to success as a software developer which made it to the front page of Hacker News and was reposted by a few technical blogs.

Technical Skills and Projects

I currently work at Mailchimp where I am migrating an RPC system to gRPC and integrating it with a Django application. Previously I worked at Pivotal integrating microservices into open source Cloud Foundry. I have also worked at Ultimate Software doing devops work in order to ensure high availability of the PCF deployment platform and at The Home Depot where I developed a proof of concept of a single backend system supporting multiple store fronts.

A few of my technical projects

BuzzHop

Developed a Game Boy game in C where Buzz must cross a busy street while avoiding enemies. To hack a timer for the game, I counted the average number of frames the Game Boy makes in a second.

PoBot

Developed a Facebook Messenger bot that allows a user to discover new poetry. Used NodeJS and Python to build this and hosted it on Heroku.

Audio AD

Developed a Unity application as a proof of concept for an audio centric software and hardware suite to help filmmakers focus on their work without having to micromanage their crew.

iTrans Research

Implemented machine learning algorithms in a Python application to better predict bus arrival and departure times based on data captured in a live MySQL database for Georgia Tech's busing system.

Visual Skills

I currently work as a visual artist at a creative agency called Chil Creative, I do freelance work for an Atlanta based artist brand called Fourofour.co, and I do content creation for Georgia Tech's social media team. Here are some of my photos. To see more of my work, checkout my Instagram.
