Work:

I've been fortunate to have already accepted a job with Qualtrics in Provo, Ut as a software engineer where I'll be starting shortly after graduation. During my time in school, I've also been fortunate to have several meaningful internships. With the University of Utah I learned a lot about computer networking. Raytheon taught me a lot about Linux and C++, and my internship with MasterControl taught me about web development.

School:

I'm graduating from the University of Utah with a Computer Science degree and Dean's honors. A variety of electives have given me a great introduction to many areas of Computer Science like Artificial Intelligence, Operating systems and Networking.

Fun:

When I have time, I love to bike, hike, play video games and of course watch movies. I have more games and movies on my list than I'll ever get to, but I enjoy trying.

I am a backend software engineer with two years of experience. I currently work at a company called HireVue that is based in South Jordan, Utah, and work on their backend web application and backend platform. I've been lucky enough to work on many projects over the last couple years that have given me experience with database design, api implementation, project planning, and many other technical areas.

School:

I will be graduating May 2019 after completing the University of Utah computer science program. In addition to core computer science classes I have taken electives that focus on backend software development. These include Computer Networking, Database Systems, Web Software Architecture, and more.

Fun:

I grew up in central California near Yosemite and have always loved getting outside and enjoying the mountains. Six years ago I moved to Utah to work in Alta, then Zion National Park, and then moved permanently to Salt Lake City. The close proximity to mountains has made me love outdoor sports and I get out as much as possible. My favorite activities are snowboarding at Snowbird or in the backcountry, fly fishing any nearby river or lake, and camping.
