I received my undergraduate degree from Carnegie Mellon University, double-majoring in Computer Science and Robotics, in May of 2015.
I'm currently working at LGS Innovations, and having a blast there. I am a software engineer, and work on a wide variety of problems, making novel applications and improving the performance and features of applications that are used by customers.
In my free time I enjoy programming side projects, reading, playing games (including video games, boardgames, and card games), and tossing a ball with my dogs. I also thoroughly enjoy hiking and the outdoors; nothing can compare to fresh air and natural surroundings. I often cook and bake, both for fun and to feed myself! I play a variety of sports (with varying levels of competence ☺), including soccer, tennis, ultimate frisbee, and others. I enjoy problem solving and logical deduction as well (which is part of the reason why I like programming so much!). I am a huge fan of classic rock, and an avid supporter of open source development.

In the Summer of 2014 I interned at LGS Innovations as a software researcher and developer, and did a number of interesting and exciting projects. I created a graphical UI component for displaying large datasets in realtime as tiled images, and also created the backend program to generate these tiled images. I also adapted a bootloader project for an AVR MCU and customized it for the application required. Finally, I interfaced a number of unique radios to the GNURadio software radio suite.
In the Summer of 2013 I interned at iCIMS as a software developer, and had a lot of fun learning C# and making an internal web application which would schedule and execute database queries across hundreds of databases, and aggregate the results for the user. I also worked on some machine learning algorithms to build a classification engine to find likely candidates for certain jobs.
For three years, ending in the Summer of 2012, I worked at Storming Robots, where I taught programming and robotics to children grades 3-12. We used LEGO robotics kits as well as Arduinos, and programmed in LabView for younger children, and C (using RobotC for the LEGO's and the Arduino Processing IDE for the Arduinos).
