Teaching is one of my big-time passions. Nothing is more rewarding to me than seeing that lightbulb moment occur on the face of a 5th grader, when he finally grasps the concept of recursion.
I may or may not have worked on this beauty.
I spent three months as a Software Engineer Intern at Northrop Grumman, working on software critical to our national defense strategy. I had the honor of "being thrown in the deep end", as my scrum-master put it. I wouldn't have had it any other way.
Instead of an intern project that might never see the light of day, I joined an existing project and was able to gain invaluable experience by pushing code to a real project. I learned the ways of Agile, Version Control, and Software Engineering by working along side seasoned engineers and a fantastic mentor.
I spent the summer of 2015 in Pasadena, working as a Software Engineer Intern at Bluebeam. Never before have I met a friendlier collection of people, always willing to work hard while setting a high bar for everyday, human interactions.
Bluebeam tasked my team with developing a prototype for a web based, blueprint collaboration platform. In 12 weeks, we built, tested, and demoed our working project to the company, including the CEO.
