At least 24 apparently.
Whether that be Chinese by watching CDramas like Please Classmate 拜托了班长;
or React Native (building an app for data-driven puppy potty training);
or how to deidentify data at scale;
or piano & trumpet.
I grew up in Lisbon, Maryland with a brief stint in Houston, TX. Since the start of high school, I've been living in various parts of Northern Virginia and Charlottesville, and currently reside in Alexandria.
I received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a second major in Statistics. My time at UVA was divided between coursework, full and pit orchestras (I play trumpet!), HooHacks (organizing takes a bit of work), among other things.
At Peregrine, we're building a powerful data integration platform to allow local & state government agencies to unlock their data and make better, data-driven decisions in ways they never could before. I've grown as an engineer exponentially faster here being surrounded by a fantastic team. And we're scaling fast. If you're interested, reach out!
I did a bit of everything -- rack servers, install and configure our products, build Spark pipelines, dev on core product, work adjacent to our privacy and civil liberties team, building recruiting Hackerranks -- all supporting our US government work. I joined for the mission & people and have learned how to tackle hard, controversial, sensitive, important problems head-on.
In my last semester at UVA, I signed up for a climbing class on a whim — thanks Andrew! — and I've fallen in love with bouldering. Got my first and only V7 a few months ago. And I've done a couple outdoor top-roping sessions, which are both terrifying and fun.
