During my senior year at Berkeley I started working on this app called Wildfire. TBD.

In the summer of 2015, I spent time in South Carolina working with a startup called Geekin Radio. I helped build the front-end of this iOS app that lets you broadcast the music you are listening to, so that others can listen in live and in real-time. Within the first two days of release, it received 50,000+ downloads, was ranked #10 in music apps, and ranked #140 overall in the App Store.

VISA Internal Forum App (System Automation and iOS Developer Intern at VISA inc.)

In 2014, I had the opportunity to work as a intern at VISA Inc. on the Global Tools and Auto Engineering Team, where my primary responsibility was working on system automation tools. I worked with Chef to automate frameworks such as Redis and Django as a proof of concept. Realizing that my team needed a sample mobile application to automate, I suggested to my managers that I build one. In two short weeks, I learned objective-c and iOS development and built a sample internal forum app for VISA. I used Parse for the backend of the iOS App.

During the summer of 2013 for my internship at Trident Marketing, I built a Twitter scraper using the Twitter API. This could be used to filter tweets based on special keywords during an allocated time and tweet back to a specific twitter handle.
