I'm passionate about uniting tech communities. I'm currently working full time at AXA US as a Technology Associate. I'm helping to organize Hack Upstate, a hackathon in Syracuse NY. I'm the co-founder and former director of Hack Potsdam, a hackathon that brought in over 100 people to the north country area. I was also the former president of the SUNY Potsdam ACM. I was an intern at AXA US, an insurance firm, over the Summer of 2016. I was also an intern at Kishmish, a digital marketing firm, over the Summer of 2015. I graduated in 2017 from SUNY Potsdam with a B.S. in Computer Science.
I take on challenges with confidence through writing great code, and I believe there is no task too difficult for a team that works together. In order to solve complex problems, I always ensure to carefully plan and coordinate the proper course of action with my team. I utilize the collaborative process in all my projects, and I love seeing people come together. It’s the best part for me when everyone brings something unique to the table - and then we take the proper steps needed to have a successful and fun project.
I would like to be at a company upon graduation where I can explore my interest in full-stack web development and explore big data.
In 5 to 10 years, I would like to be on the path for project management and be at a company that can align me with my professional goals.
I aspire to be at a company where an inclusive culture is valued, the work environment is welcoming, and I truly feel like a part of the team.

Hack Upstate seeks to unite and facilitate collaboration among the greater Upstate NY hacker community. In doing so, we aim to contribute to the growth of Upstate NY’s technology sector, and to create a robust network of technologists and regional technology companies.
I was the president of the SUNY Potsdam ACM Chapter, a club connects students with a passion for technology. I helped to facilitate and organize meetings, events, guest speakers, and projects. These efforts have created several opportunities for students, expanded the presence of the club, and strengthened the Computer Science department.
Hack Potsdam is a 24-hour student-run hackathon where over a large number people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming by working one project with a team for the duration of the event. Hack Potsdam is open to all matriculated students over 18, alumni, and professors. The event is free to attend. We have partnered with Major League Hacking (MLH), the official student hackathon league. They help to power over 200 events all around the world with a network of 65,000 hackers. Check them out at mlh.io/event-membership, or check out a video on how they empower student run hackathons.
