About Me

I'm a full-stack developer with a strong work-ethic. I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Utah in the Spring of 2021. I'm currently working at Northrop Grumman as a Software Engineer. My interests are Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Natural Language Processing.

In my free time I like to weightlift, read, and watch Zelda and Mario speedruns. I'm currently reading "How to Avoid a Climate Disaster" by Bill Gates and "The Gathering Storm" by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson. Feel free to message me about anything book-related or otherwise.


Experience

Associate Software Engineer

I work on a Workflow Management Platform centered around graph-based development. On a daily basis, I work with TypeScript, JavaScript, and React. I am concurrently working through Andrew Mead's Complete React Developer Course to deepen my understanding of the technologies I'm interacting with.

Software Engineer Intern

As an intern, I was often straddling both research and implementation tasks. This gave me a breadth of knowledge in skills such as Python, Node.js, and Neo4j. I got the chance to work on a data science pipeline built around modeling failures for equipment at various sites owned by the government.

Sales Representative

Clearhome is the #1 AT&T retailer in the US. As a member of their sales force I sold AT&T/DirectTV products in the Knoxville, TN and Green Bay, WI area. I refined my communication and negotiation skills thoroughly and often. I value my time at Clearhome and believe that the 60+ hour weeks not only paid my tuition, but also gave me many skills that shaped me professionally.
