I graduated with a Computer Science B.S. and Dance minor from Barrett, The Honors College at Arizona State University. I gained experience as an IT/Data Analytics Intern and a Software Engineering Intern at Avnet, Inc Summer 2016, 2017. I was a Software Engineer Intern at PayPal for Summer 2018. Currently, I am a Software Engineer at PayPal on the Consumer Credit team.
I am currently expanding skill-set in financial technology, data science/analytics, and web and mobile applications. I integrate my knowledge of CS & Dance to creatively solve real-world solutions.
With the partnership of computer science and 18 years of dance experience, I have also been exploring how Dance can been viewed as the physical User Interface for explaining abstract computer science concepts such as graph theory, RESTful APIs, and data structures.
I am a _____
As a Software Engineer Intern at PayPal during Summer 2018, I developed the web application that allowed the FinProd developers to perform administrative and diagnostic functions for a few of their RESTful services. The web application was coded in ReactJS, Node.js for the front-end and Express.js and SQL for the back-end.
Bluetooth Low Energy demo
As a Software Engineer Intern at Avnet during Summer 2017, I developed the prototype version of Avnet MiniZed BLE. The iOS application was coded in Swift using XCode for accessing the Accelerometer, Gyroscope, and Temperature sensor data from a Murata Type 1DX via Bluetooth.
Thesis/Creative Project (2017-2018)
Arizona State University
Barrett, the Honors College
The topic of my Creative Project centers on the question of “How can the audience's choices influence dancers' improvisation?” This dance work seeks to redefine the relationship between audience and performers through integration of audience, technology, and movement in real-time. The two web applications "Master Poll" and "Client Poll" were coded in Python.
