As a Software Engineer at The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences I am responsible for everything from software design to data analytics to infrastructure. I am also a California state licensed real estate agent and have an educational background in business analytics and finance. It was when I began working at Northrop Grumman, I decided to officially turn to computer science full time. Approximately 7 years, 12 programming languages, 15 hackathons, and over +1000 GitHub commits later I have done software development in the following industries: real estate, aerospace, financial software, internet marketing, and currently film/entertainment. One of my true passions, in addition to working with technology, is teaching, inspiring, and leading others who are interested in pursuing careers in tech related fields.
