Course Instructor

About: Hi everyone! I just graduated UW CSE in the spring. I’ve TA’d many times before, for many different courses, but this is the first time I’ll be the main instructor for a class. I am so excited to have this opportunity and to get to know you all! After this summer, I’ll be moving to the bay to work for Apple. I spent the past year applying to deferred enrollment at MBA programs (Still pending admission… I’ll say which ones if I get in but don’t want to jinx it!!) and aspire to someday move into leadership roles in technology driven social enterprise businesses. I love listening to and playing music — My girlfriend and I have most recently been listening to a mix of SOUR, dance pop, and party music from the 10's. I enjoy playing saxophone, working out, and drinking boba to counteract it (Seriously, if you have any boba recommendations, please lmk!). I love getting to know people; My mission this summer is to help you in any way possible to achieve your goals, so please feel free to reach out to chat about anything related or unrelated to this class :D
