I enjoy working with and bringing others together towards a common product. In 2016, I joined the Official Bernie Sanders Campaign as a user researcher. We shipped Bernie's official social media platform: connect.berniesanders.com and received hundreds of thousands of users. I soon left to work on ImagineBernie(.com), where I recruited a core team of 10 and 200 volunteers from all 50 states post media content via our FB page. In the end, we achieved 60+ million organically reached costing us zero dollars in 5 months + features on Business Insider and The Huffington Post.
Other various projects included working on a Hyperloop pod as a team member of rLoop, Inc. wherein 2017 we won SpaceX's Best Innovation Award in Los Angeles and personally met Elon Musk who also inspected our pod. I've accomplished 3 hackathon winning projects, one where I demoed to 2-time Olympic gold medalist Ashton Eaton and Olympian Devon Allen in Oregon.
In the past 4 years, I collaborated with ~525 colleagues from all walks of life through my experiences in 28 jobs, 5 nonprofit organizations, and 6 hackathon projects. I've taught various technical topics to ~1,100 people (150 elementary, 850 college students, and 100 colleagues). I have since worked with people from all 50 U.S. states and ~17 countries (Zambia, Tunisia, Germany, Bangladesh, India, Japan, etc).
