Born and raised in Sunny San Diego, CA. I was first introduced to the world of Engineering when I joined my high schools robotics team. I quickly rose through the ranks and led the team through my junior and senior year. In 2011, I was a Dean’s List Award recipient at the National FIRST Robotics Competition. An award that goes to a select number of individuals who show exemplary leadership and technical expertise.
Later that year, I began my studies at the University of California San Diego, where I pursued a degree in Computer Science. The start of my career in Web Development came during my time at UCSD’s department of medicine, where I worked as an IT assistant, and Web Administator for the departments SharePoint site. When I wasn’t at work or studying I found time to work on a small side project with a few friends, a project which later came to be known as FlipStamp.
Shortly after I completed my third year at UCSD, FlipStamp recieved funding. So I put my studies on hold to run my new Startup as CEO alongside the company’s other co-founders. But as is the fate of many startups, FlipStamp shut its doors just shy of 2 years of operation.
Now I work as the Lead Backend Developer for an Internet Marketing Agency called imFORZA. In my spare time I’ve had the opportunity to get back into the FIRST community as a mentor for the El Segundo High School Robotics team, the P.O.T.A.T.O.E.S.
