I'm a Computer Science graduate from the University of Illinois. As it pertains to CS, I have a soft spot for web development, and also enjoy software design, and product management. Otherwise, I really dig .
I'm currently a Software Designer and Developer for IBM. I was formerly the Lead Developer for Blue Ivory Creative, Software Designer Intern at IBM, Software Engineering Intern at Qualcomm, alongside other web dev adventures: UIUC College of ACES and several freelance gigs.
Spent a summer following my passion for web development and web design by creating Illicit Design. The beginning of my freelance career.
It's always a blast to work with awesome designers.
Itching to practice front end and continue learning from designers better than myself, I decided to help out Mariam in hopes of learning some of her tricks of the trade.
We set aside our Team Valor - Team Mystic rivalry for the duration of this project.
Kevin Yang and I met in the intersection of
beer and design appreciation, and went to work from there.

One of three projects that we were assigned
during my IBM internship. Given a week, we were tasked with
raising awareness about Maelstrom, the young IBM Design
internship. Specifically, we needed to target prospective
interns and faculty that could identify good fits for the
We were split into three teams: video, web, and roadmap. Video team was tasked with creating footage both capturing the purpose and personality of the program, web was to create an online resource for all of this information to live, and roadmap was responsible for coming up how this content will live on and transform after we pass it off.
I was assigned to the web team with Noah Lafferty, Lisa Vuong, and Wen Xiong. The crux of the project was to create something that reflects the space and experience in a novel and exciting way; in essence, we needed to make something novel, informative, and exciting that converts a user into an applicant.
We leveraged the Foundation platform in this project, as speed and responsiveness were critical. I was responsible for contributing to brainstorming novel ideas, as well as the actual implementation. See the website here and the repository here!

VandyHacks was the kickoff of Spring Break
2015. We were shooing for the coolest prize with the most
open-ended prompt: capture the "Spirit of Nashvile".
Wanting to optimize our Nashville experience, we figured it'd be neat to have a web app that allowed you to build an itinerary in the very culture-rich city.
We used AngularJS for the front end, and NodeJS, MongoDB, and Flux for the backend. We downloaded attractions from the Nashville public data site then threw them into Mongo. When the user searched, we would pull and consolidate data from Google Maps API and from our database and show a subset, sorted by proximity.
The project that ignited my passion for web development!
Neutral Design is a Champaign-Urbana startup responsible for Neutral Cycle bike shop. They needed a web app for reserving and renting bikes, including all customer and manager side functionality.
My main responsibility was the management functionality. Managers should be able to see which rentals are pending, currently checked out, or pending. They should also be able to change the status of a reservation and quickly search through them. Additionally, I worked on the server, payment logic, building the login page, and troubleshooting the main page. Built using AngularJS, Node, Firebase, and Stripe.
Still under development!
