Biographical Info

After receiving my Master's degree in Geology in June 2016 from Rice, I have since begun my career as a software developer. I work on mobile, desktop, and cloud solutions for a range of clients as well as a few scientific hobby projects. Despite my passion for coding and software, I am still a volcano lover at heart.
