Since high school, I've been making apps of all sizes. When Android and iOS apps were all the rage, I made a homework prioritizing app, which amassed tens of thousands of downloads, teaching me a lesson or two about building for scale.
Then I went to college at USC, keen on becoming a biomedical engineer. I found that I could more readily engage with nature and technology by pursuing a Computer Science degree, so I went ahead and did that. I got to tinker with VR in the same Mixed Reality Lab where Oculus' inventor, himself, tinkered. I also started to think about computing for social good.
Now I work on IBM Cloud, building robust backend systems for high-impact services running in public and private cloud.
