Simply Put, I am a student and programmer. I am attending San Diego State University, planning to graduate in 2018 with my BS in Computer Science. I am also minoring in Interdisciplinary Studies at the Weber Honors College at SDSU.
I currently work as the Faculty Support Lead Student Assistant at Instructional Technology Services – San Diego State University, working as a Full Stack Developer. I get to develop faculty Support tools that facilitate Faculty Support and improve our day to day operations. Check out my work on our Organizational GitHub Account.
I also work together with Residential Education at San Diego State University in the First-Year residence halls as an Senior Academic Mentor. As an Academic Mentor, commonly abbreviated AM, I live together with ~35 students and provide academic guidance and support to the students in the various Residential Learning Communities.
In my free time, together with SRND (Student Research and Development) I help organize CodeDay as a Senior Code Evangelist™. CodeDay has helped to bring tech education to 20,000+ students in 40+ cities worldwide, with a highly diverse attendee population (43% women; 38% low-income; 28% minorities).
I also I build and fly Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and play with various embedded systems, including the Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, and Arduino. I have spoken about several of these topics at Code Camps in the Southern California Area – which you can see in the Talks Section.
