About Me

I am a former software engineer at Creative Juice. I graduated from the University of Utah in 2022 with a Bachelor's in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics.


I worked with Dr. Chris Myers at the Genetic Logic Lab for four years during my undergraduate studies. My focuses included large scale genetic data repositories and search methods for genetic sequences.

I love to do anything outdoors, such as backpacking, rock climbing, fishing, mountain biking, or skiing.
