I’m a computer scientist who graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with both a BS and MS in Computer Science. Outside of computing, I enjoy trying new foods and beers, watching movies, driving, and a good bike ride.


I graduated from the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences at the Rochester Institute of Technology where I was enrolled in the Department of Computer Science’s accelerated BS/MS degree program.

In January 2010, I switched roles from a Software Engineer in Test to a Software Engineer. I still work at Google in New York on the Apps Platform team doing fun infrastructure-related stuff with notifications (email, SMS, chat, etc.) and sharing (Google Buzz, Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader, etc.). Note: I am not currently seeking a change of employment at this time!

From September 2008 to January 2010, I worked as a Software Engineer in Test for Google in New York City on the Apps Platform team.

From September 2007 to May 2008, I worked as a Teaching Assistant for the RIT Department of Computer Science. My responsibilities included grading, tutoring, lecturing, teaching labs, and hosting review sessions (always with free pizza).

From September 2007 to August 2008, I also worked as a Graduate Assistant in the Computer Science Department’s new Document and Pattern Recognition Lab under the advisement of Dr. Richard Zanibbi. It was during this time that I got very little sleep, learned a ton, and developed the Video CAPTCHA.

From June 2007 to August 2007, I interned as a Software Engineer in Test at Google in Mountain View, CA. It was an incredible summer. You can read about “My Googley Adventure” here.

From March 2006 to August 2006, I interned as a Database Developer at Excellus BlueCross BlueShield in Rochester, NY. After I completed my 6 month co-op, I continued working part-time at EBCBS until March 2007.
