My Skills

Multilingual and Well Read

Visual Basic

Hardware Knowledge

In 2014, I was part of a small development team that coded a robot using the WPILib library for C++. I learned about the different actuators and sensors found on robotic devices, such as encoders and solenoids. I also became familiar with how to use PID control loops to better control robots in autonomous modes.

Industry Experience

During this my two terms interning on Sony Creative Software, I worked on a suite of video editing products written in Qt framework(C++). I worked on high-priority tasks including a UX redesign and implementing an analytic system, which was required to met one of our quarterly objectives and resulted in grant money from Sony. I also gained experience in a SCRUM based Agile team and learned how to use JIRA to communicate effectively and become more productive. In the end, my work enabled me to earn two "Outstanding" evaluations from my supervisor.
