What I'm up to now

I'm currently working at an amazing AI startup in NYC as a software engineer on the core applications team. Our tech stack consists of Python for our ML services, React on the front-end, and a combination of Go/Node/Typescript on the back-end. I've worked on some amazing projects while at ASAPP, and it's so gratifying to know my work helps thousands of people be more efficient at their jobs every day!

Current Interests

Blockchain

I happened upon a blockchain hackathon back in May 2017, and have been hooked ever since. I've since attended a couple blockchain hackathons, and have won 2.5 bitcoins and two Xbox Ones with my projects! While I'm still learning and exploring, I am able to build dApps end to end using Truffle, Ganache, Remix, Metamask, and Web3. I'm always happy to chat or collaborate on cool crypto ideas.


Why software engineering

I previously worked for CVS/Pharmacy as a certified pharmacy technician. While I enjoyed helping people manage and improve their health, there were many inefficiencies behind the pharmacy counter that ate away at my team's productivity and ability to take care of our patients. I began seeing all the ways we could automate and streamline processes at every store I worked. Cutting down time on unnecessary tasks meant more time my team could devote to helping our patients. I wanted to be the person who shook up the industry, and here I am.
