I am currently a full-stack software engineer on the Twitter for Business team at Twitter. Over the past ~4 years at Twitter, I've developed and provided technical leadership on a significant number of projects that play a large part in supporting Twitter's 300+ million monthly active users, from user support and account access retrieval to business tools and user-facing analytics dashboards.
I provide technical leadership to teams I work with by organizing large projects into discrete actionable tasks, prioritizing work to plan and meet deadlines, coordinating cross-functional and cross-team dependencies, and clearly communicating goals. While I am excited to keep my hands in the code and to make significant contributions on that front, I love to take initiative in going above and beyond to ensure that my team performs as efficiently and effectively as possible. To date, I have successfully led teams of 4-9 engineers in delivering a number of high-impact, high-quality products and features on time.
In general, I'm a versatile engineer who enjoys coding and solving problems, owning projects from ideation to launch and beyond, and driving my team to be the most high-performing team it can be. My most recent work has led me to become most familiar with Ruby and Scala, but I'm eager to learn and I adapt well to new languages and new technologies. If you have a challenge I may be interested in helping to solve, please reach out!

• Primarily drove frontend export flow on twitter.com in Ruby on Rails, JS, and Mustache; created email to be sent to users when their archive was ready for download.
