Hire me

I believe in passion, hard work, and family. Passion drives me to follow my dreams, and hard work makes them become a reality. And family, for me, is more than just my parents or siblings, but a much wider circle of those I care about and that care for me, and those that together we’ll help make the world a better place.

My passion for entrepreneurship led me to start an e-commerce business at 18. The experience of owning a business at a young age was extremely influential. It taught me about hard work, focus, and working smarter. Later, while studying Computer Science in college, I started the Society for Business and Entrepreneurship to help teach these principals. In 1½ years, while interning (Ruby on Rails shop and others), I received 3 Associate Degrees (4.0 GPA) and was 1 of 8 of 70,000+ students to complete the honors curriculum. I was elected Who's Who in American Universities, and honored with the NOVA SEAL Award. Then, looking toward California for it’s strong entrepreneurial culture, I enrolled in USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering.

USC and the family of the Trojan Network has afforded me numerous opportunities and experiences including: working as a software engineer at Graphiq, IBM, Velocloud Networks, and being a part of an array of entrepreneurial endeavors as CTO of the DailyDeed (DC-based startup), Founder of GiftsForAllKids.com (non-profit), Data Guru for RydeBikes (USC startup), and technical cofounder of Xavier (thought-to-text software). I work as a Software Engineer at Human Dx.

I enjoy traveling, sailing, motorcycle riding, and mountain climbing. StartingBloc Fellow, CGIU Fellow
