My face
Hello there!
I'm a software engineer living in Boston, Massachusetts.

About

I'm a software engineer at HubSpot. I work hard and make things.

In my free time, I like to hack on my own projects, like my army of Twitter bots. I open source all of my code, and you can check it out on GitHub! I also love to encourage women in the technical fields, cook, and rescue cats.

I am an active editor of the English Wikipedia, where I'm an administrator and arbitrator.

Brandeis is a tool to semi-automatically convert HTML court cases into Wikitext, and then upload them to the English Wikisource.

Work

I work as a front-end software engineer at HubSpot, a company that develops an inbound marketing and sales software platform.

I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science from Northeastern University in 2016. During my time there, I did three six-month-long co-ops.

For my second and third co-ops, I also worked at HubSpot. On my third co-op, I worked as a frontend and backend engineer on an internal tool to track usage and other events in the HubSpot product. On my second co-op, I worked as a front-end developer on the reporting team, where I developed and maintained some of HubSpot's analytics tools. I used CoffeeScript and Backbone, as well as jade, Handlebars, and SASS.

I did my first co-op in January—June 2013, working as a software developer at NxStage Medical, Inc., a renal care device company.

In the summer of 2013, I participated as a student in Google Summer of Code, where I worked with the Wikimedia Foundation.
