As a kid, I always liked computers and technology; I would fool around in PowerPoint and Excel for fun. I first found my interest in programming in high school by writing a Snake-like game for my TI-83 calculator during Algebra 2.

I always knew I wanted to pursue a career in technology, I just wasn’t sure which direction to go with it. I spent my first two years at college working on a research project that offered incredible opportunities for me to experiment and publish results at NASA Ames Research Center, but it also taught me that academic research was not for me.

Next, I tried robotics through a summer internship at the University of Michigan. There I recognized that programming was my passion, but I wasn’t thrilled with the mechanical engineering side of robotics. Finally, I was introduced to Atomic Object through the Atomic Games in October 2017. I interned at Atomic the summer of 2018 and instantly fell in love with the practices, people, and purpose here.

I graduated from Alma College in December of 2018 with a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science and began working as a developer for Atomic shortly after.
