Software Engineer at Capital One

"Programming since the age of 6. My undergraduate focus was in Biochemistry and I almost went to medical school before realizing I love building out solutions to problems more. So now I'm gradually finding ways to integrate my love for technology with improving our healthcare system. Still, at the core, I love working with clients to design and build out meaningful products :). Part of the fun for me is in designing, iterating, and working towards a solution that addresses the problem, and, perhaps more importantly, is designed in such a way that that the user experience is seamless. I'm incredibly engaged in such endeavors, so if you have ideas on how we can collaborate, I'd love to connect! "
