Since then, this passion has carried me through my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and is driving me now as a part-time online graduate student at Georgia Tech and in my full-time contract role as a Software Engineer at Nike. I've been so grateful to be able to study and learn more about this field, all with pretty much the same fascination that drove me as a kid.
So, now in the industry, this passion remains with me. I most certainly have more to learn, more problems to solve, and more projects to be a part of. For this, I am very grateful to my younger self, and I am looking forward to what's to come.
I have 5 years of backend development experience using Java and Node.js. I'm an avid builder of distributed microservices and serverless applications using cloud platforms.
I enjoy designing and building large, scalable, high-availability services, and I love taking ownership of these projects from inception, through design, and to production and beyond.
I am an ardent automator. I strongly believe in automation and its long-term benefits. If I ever have to do long, repetitive, or boring processes - you can bet I will automate it!
