At least 22 apparently.
always looking to learn
Right now, I'm learning Chinese, how to cook *edible* food, poker theory, and various programming things.
I grew up in Lisbon, Maryland until the end of sixth grade when my family moved to Houston, TX. After eighth grade, we moved to Oakton, VA where I went to high school until going to UVA in Charlottesville, VA. My last move was to Arlington, VA (current residence) for work.
University of Virginia, class of 2019
I received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a second major in Statistics. My time at UVA was divided between coursework, full and pit orchestras (I play trumpet!), HooHacks (organizing takes a bit of work), among other things.
I picked computer science in large part to all the software engineering I got to learn and do in high school -- Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria.

So far, I've done a bit of everything -- rack servers, install and configure our products, build Spark pipelines, dev on core product -- supporting our US government work. The impact is incredible! I've also been involved with recruiting -- interviewing candidates, creating the Path internship HackerRank, demo-ing to intern candidates.
In my last semester at UVA, I signed up for a climbing class on a whim — thanks Andrew! — and I've fallen in love with bouldering. Pre-COVID, I was up to around V4s; now I think I'm back at V-Ladder. Been itching to boulder.
