Interactive Resume

Hi there!

About:
I am a hard-worker with an eye for perfection and a people-oriented person who enjoys engaging with others in a team. When I'm not studying for my classes, I like to work-out and play on my alto-saxophone (not at the same time). If life permits, my friends and I go into Boston to have a good time and take in the sights.

Career

Microsoft
June 2017 - Aug. 2017

Software Developer Intern
I worked on the SQL Server on Linux Security team but worked independently from the team with the exception of weekly scrum meetings with my manager to discuss progress. I developed a local, real-time user authentication system for SQL Server on Linux in C++ that allowed Linux users to automatically authenticate themselves on an instance of SQL Server. This saves users time and effort in retrieving their permissions on a given database. I also learned C++, SQL Server, and security without any prior experience.
