I've spent ~10 years in the software engineering industry, as an individual contributor, team lead, and manager.
Next, I led a team of full-stack engineers at Capital One modernizing their acquisitions platform. Similar to my experience at CATT, I was responsible for working with the teams to accomplish our goals, but also mentor employees, partner teams, interns, and other colleagues to learn the full-stack web development tech, infrastructure, software development process. I spent 3.5 years at Capital One in this role, designing, building, and deploying several major production software systems
Following that I managed several teams at Porch, a startup in Seattle, for 2 years. During that time, I was both an individual contributor and manager. I was responsible for building the business, it's software solutions, and mentoring the individual software engineers on the teams.
Education & Certification
Undergraduate Degree: University of Maryland-College Park - Bachelor of Science, Computer Science
I enjoy cooking, weight lifting, biking, dinner parties, music, programming, and reading. Recently, I completed a bit torrent client in Rust, a book called Station Eleven, and have been working my way through listening to the top 2020 albums from NPR and the Needle Drop. Ramen and curry are current favorites in the kitchen alongside Persian cuisine, such as tahdig, khoresh bademjan, and loobia polo.
