What are you most looking forward to in joining the GiveSignup team?

I have a lot of experience doing backend development which I hope to further grow at GiveSignup, but I also hope to work on front end projects and transition towards being a full stack developer.

Where are you from, and where do you currently reside?

I am from Pennsauken, New Jersey. I currently still live in Pennsauken.

Please tell us a little more about your background. 

I am currently a Junior studying Computer Science at Rowan University. In my past experience, I worked as an intern for Subaru of America where I worked primarily on backend development.

Tell us about your hobbies and interests, and what you like to do for fun outside of work.

Outside of work and school, I love to play volleyball. I have been playing since I was 14 and have played for a variety of teams, both teams from South Jersey and Philadelphia. I try to live a very active lifestyle. I like to spend most of my free time outside, going for walks, hiking, or playing sports.

What is a fun fact about yourself?

I have played almost every position in volleyball.

Please tell us a little more about your background. 

I worked on a research project at Rowan University creating a note taking software for caretakers of adults with autism. This gave me experience in creating both a web app and a mobile app. I gained skills in SQL, JavaScript, and overall web development working on this project.

I enjoy watching sports and going to games. I’m a fan of the Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, and Flyers.
