About Me

An expert in engineering methodologies for technologically-advanced operations.

While pursuing a masters in robotics at the University of Pennsylvania, I held roles as a project engineer at Tesla, and focused my studies on building integrated web and mobile applications. Since graduating in 2017, I have undertaken multiple projects in the web and mobile app space.

As of January 2019, I'm seeking software engineering opportunities in web and iOS development.

My Areas of Focus

Web Apps

Full-stack web development is my specialty! I can build out a REST API on the back end or build a responsive, component-based UI on the front end. For an engineer, I'd also say I have a good eye for visual design.

Mobile Apps

When it comes to mobile, I primarily focus on building iOS applications in Swift, however I have some familiarity with both Objective C and building Android apps in Java.

Hybrid Apps

If you can dream it, I can build it. I specialize in building cross-platform applications, integrating technologies such as web, mobile, robotics, databases, hardware, and machine learning.
