About

If you had asked me 10 years ago what software engineering was, I would've told you it's just entering 1s and 0s into a computer. I quickly realized how vast the field actually was and naturally got overwhelmed. I was lucky enough to meet impactful mentors who guided me through various types of questions such as what languages/frameworks to learn, how to prepare for interviews, how to be a professional and set goals, and the list goes on. I wouldn't be the engineer I am today without my mentors and I want to pay it forward to other folks looking to further their careers.

I went to the University of Waterloo for Computer Engineering where I underwent six internships at companies such as Microsoft, Hulu and Yelp. I quickly found my passion in UI development through this. After my internships, I went back to Hulu full time and worked on their TV applications where I ultimately was the tech lead for all Details page experiences across the various clients. About a year ago, I moved over to Netflix where I currently am a Senior Software Engineer building user interfaces.

As a former intern, I'm extremely passionate about early career development and hiring. I have been actively involved in Hulu's and Netflix's early career recruiting programs. I am also very career oriented and believe I can help with career development topics such as setting goals, gaining more visibility, progressing your career.

I have also been a part of literally hundreds of interviews as a candidate and interviewer through my internships and full time roles. I believe I can help with all aspects of interview preparation to make you successful at companies you apply for.

If any of this sounds interesting to you, don't hesitate to reach out! I am very willing to work with you to find a program that works for us to make sure you're able to achieve your true potential!
