I thrive at the intersection of collaborative and independent work. Put me on a team and I will advocate for my own ideas while supporting others'. Having spent the past five years collaborating on film projects, I recognize the value in diversity. Each one of my teammates had a set of skills that I trusted and learned from, yet our roles were unified by a single vision.
One rule I live by is that enthusiasm is more important to mastery than innate ability. Give me a task and I will eagerly commit myself to finding an efficient solution because I’m obsessed with logic and problem-solving. I love being challenged to learn new technologies and frameworks, and I’m not afraid to ask for help along the way.
Before enrolling in App Academy, I completed a 17-week Bridge program at NYU Tandon School of Engineering for students with a non-technical background, where I learned the foundations of computer science, networking, operating systems, data structures and algorithms, and memory management.
My projects are not complete until my code is optimally maintainable, readable, and DRY, down to the spacing and indentation. I am confident that I can meet any organizational goals thrown my way because I am attentive to detail and intrinsically motivated to get into the weeds to derive a result that I am wholly satisfied with.
Given my background in film, I care deeply about design and write code with the end user in mind. Even problem-solving offers an opportunity for creativity when it comes to experimenting with various data structures and algorithms to find the most efficient solution. My aim is always to create intuitive, accessible, and responsive applications.
