I am a senior at Duke University majoring in Computer Science (BS). I am a developer with an emphasis on the web. I love building new things, and I am particularly excited about the rise of client-side development and the possibilities of what will be possible on the open web in the coming years. I've found it hard to hone in on an area of software development, as there are many places that excite me. At school, I've greatly enjoyed teaching software development and design techniques in Java to students as a UTA. I also spend a lot of time tinkering with new software techniques and tools. Outside of my professional life, I like to mountain bike and ski, a token to growing up in Boise, ID. Reach out to me to talk about opportunities, projects, cool technologies, and mountains!
