I previously worked as a software engineer specializing in UI development and lead generation on the Customer Acquisition Team at Slack.

I have been working professionally as a developer since 2015 and hold a Bachelor’s in Computer Science from Hampton University and a Master’s in Computer Science from Cornell Tech.

Outside of work, I volunteer as the Technology Director and a Board Advisor for Techqueria, a nonprofit that serves the largest global community of Latinx professionals in tech.

I currently reside in Inglewood with my partner and two Corgis, Luna & Sueño.
