eCIO

Software Developer Intern Summer 2019

Worked with another developer to build out the company's MVP webapp (React + Mobx). I built out many different features including user profile, organization service, superadmin user management pages, signup workflow. These features helped eCIO market and onboard their first fee paying clients.

AkitaBox

Software Developer Intern Summer 2017 & 2018

While there, I learned about Node.js and was introduced to non-blocking io. During my first internship, I worked on the company's Slack bot which communicates vital information from the servers to the development team using AWS API. In 2018, I got the opportunity to work on the webapp which allowed me to learn about Angular and other front end frameworks. Through these two summers, I was also exposed to the agile development model.

Extracurriculars

Robojackets - GATech's competitive robotics team

Member of Outreach & IGVC 2018-Present

I've been working with the outreach team to voulenteer at robotics tournaments and mentor high school students in FRC. In addition, I'm currently helping to create educational videos to teach new teams how to build their robot. I am also a member of the software team for the Intelegent Ground Vehicle Competition (IGVC) team where I'm working on training a semantic segmentation neural network to detect lines and obstacles.

BadgerBOTS Robotics

Co-President 2013-2018

The FIRST Robotics Competition is an opportunity for students to work together to solve a common problem. We design (CAD - SolidWorks), build and program our robot which has advanced to the global competition the past two years. My sophomore year, I developed a web app that allowed our team to gather competitive data with our phones instead of paper. It used php and a centeralized MYSQL database. The system also compiles and generalizes the data so that we can quickly and effectively determine team strategy with the most recent data right before each match. My Junior year, I led the overall programming effort for the team. During my Senior year, I became the co-president of the team. In this role, I took on many new challenges like finances and buisness while still helping out with the robot.
