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 engineering at IBM and 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 signed a contract to work as a Software Engineer on the Data Science team at Graphiq and will begin in January 2017. Until then I’m traveling the world and doing contract work remotely. If you are looking for a data science consultant or software engineer for a remote contract, please contact me with the link above.

I enjoy traveling, sailing, motorcycle riding, and mountain climbing. 2013 StartingBloc Fellow
