InternshipLong Term Employee

I am a former high school math teacher pursuing software engineering. I am an adept and creative problem solver and am an effective communicator who enjoys actively generating viable solutions to real problems. My current preferred language of programming is in Python because I genuinely love the simplicity and power that Python allows in the creation of code that's readable and functional. I also love Javascript and backend development in general because I value functionality and interplay of various components, database focused or otherwise. Aside from software development, I have interests in cryptocurrency and math education. I casually invest in crypto and hope to study more of the mathematics behind blockchain in my free time. Additionally, as an former educator, I'm also interested how technology can be used to spark student interest and engagement in mathematics and other STEM related fields.

Ideal Workplace Values

I value a workplace that fosters a culture of mutual support and autonomy of work. I love work environments that one give me the freedom to work the way that I desire as long as I am meeting company goals. I also highly value leaders who genuinely care for the well-being of their employees through their proactive actions, not just in word.

My Neuro-exceptional talent

My ADHD allows me to focus really well on things that I care about. If I really love something, I will hyperfocus and lose track of time on what I'm doing.
