I'm currently a rising sophomore at the University of South Carolina. I'm pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a major in computer science and a minor in psychology (weird, right?). I'm also a McNair Scholar as part of UofSC's most prestigious scholarship program, the University Top Scholars.
I just wrapped up a full-time internship as a front-end web developer at Cloverleaf. There, I used a variety of technologies (primarily Next/React and GraphQL) in an agile development team to routinely publish production code for our application. I was also an undergraduate teaching assistant for the spring 2020 semester, running eight sections of Linux/UNIX labs for approximately 250 students.
I began taking swing dance classes last year (we’ve paused to protect the dancers' health) and hanging out at a swing dance club in Columbia. I also own a 1963 Mercury Comet Custom that I am restoring, learning a ton about working on classic cars in the process. I am an avid film photographer and am planning to take a photography course this fall. I am the webmaster and executive board member at ACM@USC, the University of South Carolina's student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery.
