I'm a 24 year old living in San Luis Obispo (he/him). I graduated from Cal Poly with a degree in computer science in March 2022.
I discovered computer science while researching enzymes in a biochemistry lab at Cal Poly. Drowning in spreadsheets, a colleague suggested I visualize the data with Python. All of a sudden, I found myself making all sorts of scripts to make my life in the lab a little easier.
After a few months of this, I knew I was in love. I hung up the lab coat, changed majors, and joined the Cal Poly Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence club (CSAI). I started building websites for students to interact with the club's chatbot, Nimbus, and soon I led a team that built a data cleaning app for Nimbus.
These days I do full stack web development for iFixit. In my time there I've helped migrate iFixit's ecommerce experience to Shopify and reimplement their product catalogs with Next.js, Algolia's search engine, and Strapi's content management system.
I've learned that I really enjoy building beautiful web applications that help people achieve their goals. I have so many brilliant friends and mentors to thank for what I've learned on my journey so far, and I look forward to the challenges and learning opportunities ahead.
A deeper dive into some of the projects and teams I've devoted my time to.
See you out there!
