I'm a software engineer as well as an educator and practicing visual artist. Since 2020 I've had the privilege of working at one of the world's most competitive and inclusive software bootcamps both as a fullstack engineer maintaining our internal platform and tools as well as a lead instructor responsible for taking cohorts of 100+ students from their first day to their first jobs in the industry over the course of an intensive 6 month curriculum.
Before transitioning to my career as a software engineer I taught painting, life drawing, art history and multimedia arts at a number of colleges in Northern and Southern California for the better part of a decade. Prior to this I worked as a TA at Yale School of Art where I received my MFA and at the San Francisco Art Institute where I received my BFA.
Although I have been very happy with my experience in my current position, I am actively looking for new opportunities to continue expanding as a software engineer and as a member of the larger tech community.
