WHAT DO YOU DO?
Bring people together to solve problems by using technology
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
I fell in love with computers with my first "Hello World" program :)
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
Right now, working at Netflix, changing the way movies are made!
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
Problem solving - my STEM training has equipped me with the curiosity and logic to break down any big, hairy problem into smaller problems!
BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
Haters gonna hate - don't believe anything they tell you. Instead, believe those handful of people who support you and believe in you! I was made fun of in High School by boys who told me the only reason I scored so well in Computer Science was because the teacher liked me or because I memorized all the possible "coding exercises". My dad though, always believed in me. I am glad I always chose to believe what my dad told me and not those boys :)
