I’m an engineer, writer and public speaker.

Currently, I’m Leader for Global Operations fellow at MIT pursuing my MBA and Masters in Engineering.

I’ve worked as an iOS engineer at Slack and Calm where I built features and systems like in-app notifications and flexible onboarding questionnaires. 

I’m the creator of We Read Too, a mobile directory of children’s and young adult books written by authors of color. My own love of reading inspired me to create the app, my favorite genre is speculative fiction and my favorite author is Octavia Butler. 

For my writing and speaking, I’ve covered topics such as mobile development, accessibility, notifications, culture of the technology industry, my personal journey into tech and more.
