Hello! I’m a developer, photojournalist, and computer wizard (thanks Grandma!) from Berkeley, California. I’m currently majoring in (undecided) at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
In the summers of 2020 and 2022, I was a news platforms intern for Berkeleyside where I helped migrate content and templates from a custom WordPress setup to Newspack. In 2021, I was a data “science” intern at the San Francisco AIDS Foundation where I was trained in HIPAA compliance and helped visualize hepatitis C patient pathways.

I try to make things better by making better things.<projects>
Here are a few of those things, in reverse-chronological order.
Every day, students grapple with dozens of confusing web portals, emails, Instagram accounts, calendars, and posters. I created 75grand, a work-in-progress student portal for Macalester College, as a central dashboard for the school. (SvelteKit, Tailwind, Google Sheets)
I was feeling desperately homesick at college (“Is it too late to choose UC Berkeley??”), so I distracted myself by creating Rosebuds, a new tab page that reminds you of even small things, like breakfast with a friend or calling home, to look forward to. (Alpine, Tailwind)
High school graduation was impacted by COVID-19 in three years in a row, so I created interactive message boards where hundreds families shared photos, congratulations, and memories. (Alpine, PHP, SQLite, Sass)
Seniors of the Jacket Editorial Board
I’m also to blame for my dad’s personal website (Hugo, Sass), this website (SvelteKit, Tailwind), the Climate Equity Action Fund’s website and logo (WordPress, Sass), and the Jacket’s branding and slogan, “The Voice of the Students.”</projects>
