Curriculum Developer at Codecademy, focused on cybersecurity.

Hi there! I’m a Curriculum Developer here at Codecademy. I work mostly on cybersecurity content, as well as command line and Git content.

I was born and raised in Queens, NYC. I’ve been an educator for much of my life, starting with my role as the eldest sibling in an immigrant household. My educator journey included being a Teaching Assistant for college courses, teaching a high school summer program, adjunct lecturing at a college, and now working at Codecademy! Along the way, I’ve also worked as a Software Engineer at Tumblr. I hold a B.S. in Computer and Information Sciences from Duke University.

Outside of work, I like to spend time on art, movement (all interpretations), and holding community events.
