I'm currently the SUNY Potsdam ACM president, and I'm passionate about uniting the tech community. I helped to bring a 24-hour hackathon, Hack Potsdam, to the north country area that brought in over 100 people. The efforts from the SUNY Potsdam ACM have created several opportunities for students, expanded the presence of the club, and strengthened the Computer Science department. I'm also a four-time participant of Hack Upstate, a 24-hour hackathon that happens twice a year. I'm pursuing a B.S. in Computer Science at SUNY Potsdam and I graduate in May 2017.
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 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.
