I'm a software developer and designer studying computer science at Wilfrid Laurier University. This summer, I'll be working at Facebook. After that, I'll graduate in Spring 2022.
I grew up playing video games (NBA Live, Smash Bros, and Halo), watching a lot of sci-fi (The Matrix, Blade Runner, and Star Wars), and playing basketball. Naturally, I was interested in tech, but didn't actually start coding till later on in high school.
When I did start coding, I found I learned best when I taught others. I founded a non-for-profit, Cipher, with a couple of friends and we ran workshops and hackathons to introduce programming to other high schoolers.
After high school, studying computer science was a no-brainer. In the summer, I was lucky to work at Mappedin, where I built indoor mapping experiences that appear across the globe. After two years, I took a gap year. I worked at HXOUSE, a creative incubator founded by The Weeknd, La Mar Taylor, and Ahmed Ismail. Then, I worked at Tesla, helping accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy. My last internship was at Shopify, making commerce better for everyone. I also volunteered with North America's largest hackathon, Hack the North.
I'm currently exploring 3D modeling, Rust, and guitar and reading Dragon Ball and Rapture by Nick Nurse.
