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.

A.B. Candidate in Computer Science
I am an undergraduate student who loves playing in the university band and eating fiery wings at the student pub. After taking the Introduction to Computer Science course, I realized that I wanted to dedicate my life to programming.
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.

I spearheaded the establishment of HCS's first successful membership system and community outreach program. I also manage HCS, a club with funds reaching over $40,000 and email list servers that span over 4000 students on campus. Negotiating sponsorship deals with external companies, such as Microsoft and Google, is also a major aspect of my job.
