Who am I?

Although I went to NYU's engineering school, most of the skills I learned today are self-taught. I have 6+ years of freelance web development experience, and have co-founded 3 different companies. I love new challenges, and will work my hardest to make sure any project I work on lives up to the client's expectations.

Outside of programming, I enjoy running, rock climbing, going to concerts and traveling to new cities and continents.

My education and experience.


Computer Science

Concentrating in Digital Media, I took courses in Psychology, Gameification, Data Visualization, and 3D Graphics in addition to the traditional Algorithms and Data Structures-based curriculum.

Not a traditional education. With my BeautyBuddy co-founder, I learned and applied to principles of Steve Blank's lean methodology, conducting over 100 customer interviews and nailing down the pain points and value propositions for my business.

Co-founder & CTO

Architected, built and maintained a scalable system for connecting beauty professionals with employers using the MEAN stack.
