> echo "hello world"
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
