About Me


I’m a full stack developer from NYC. I love building web applications with React and NodeJS as well as learning Python to explore data. My educational background is in economics and political science, and I have an MPA in international development from Tsinghua University in China. I think broadly and critically about meaningful and challenging problems and coding has given me the opportunity to explore all of these passions on a daily basis.

Before coding, I was a senior research analyst for two years at a private telecommunications company. My job grew into a management role instructing our vendor in India on data entry. While working to improve data collection, I became interested in databases and tools to improve work flow which led me to enroll in a part-time intro to web development course centered on Ruby. I was energized by the challenges and learning environment a career in programming could offer, which motivated me to leave this job and enroll in a full time web development bootcamp of four months where I learned Javascript, React/Redux, NodeJS/Express, Mocha/Chai MongoDB/Mongoose, PostgreSQL and Python, while building web applications.

Side Projects

I am currently building Family-Page as a React Native app to make it more accessible to family members while learning React Native.

What I'm Really Good At

I have high emotional intelligence which drives me to work well on teams and communicate effectively. I recently discovered how to leverage these skills in the agile, scrum work environment which has helped me learn at a rapid pace and quickly add value to my team.

What I'm Looking To Do Next

React and NodeJS are powerful tools that have allowed me to build quickly. I would love to continue to work with these tools as well as expand and use React Native while building skills as a developer. I also enjoy thinking through data structures and using the tools of programming to explore data, and would also be interested in focusing on the languages and technologies in this field.
