Senior Curriculum Developer at Codecademy.

Howdy! I’m a Senior Curriculum Developer here at Codecademy. I designed and helped build Learn C++, Learn SQL, Learn Swift, Learn A-Frame, Learn Emojicode, Learn CircuitPython, the Computer Science and Data Science Paths, Codecademy Cheatsheets, and the Codecademy Shop.

My favorite project so far though is the Codecademy Instagram filter that has been used by over 550k people worldwide.

Before joining the team at Codecademy, I taught introductory computer science courses at Columbia University and Lehman College. I was a Ph.D. Candidate in Computer Vision at the Graduate Center, and I have a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from Ohio State University.

In my spare time, I enjoy coming up with software/hardware ideas and bringing them to life. I’m currently working on Codecademy Docs and a karaoke web app on the weekends for fun.
