New York Native, Austin recreative. ✌️ Find me: Nava PBC. Alum: Kickstarter, hackNY, HackTX, StuyCS.

I write for film and code for good. You can find my resume here. If you'd like to gossip with me about technology for society, films for sobriety, or that one movie where Audrey Hepburn plays a blind woman, contact me at

I'm a backend systems developer and sometimes-Android developer with a bit of Rust fanboyism thrown in. I've worked at the systems level in C, done Graphics and Physical Simulation work and research in C++ and OpenGL, developed Computer Vision applications using OpenCV, and worked on an assortment of projects in Python, Perl, Ruby, Java, Javascript, Scala, Golang, Rust...the works.

In the past, I've worked as an Android developer for early-stage, IBM Watson-funded startup Cerebri and as a software engineering intern at MongoDB, architecting and actively maintaining their Rust driver. I've also worked for GeoTrellis as a Facebook Open Academy engineer, for Amazon AWS on their distributed RDS and DynamoDB technologies, and for local Austin company Blastro Networks, developing and orchestrating a simultaneous release of their three flagship Android apps.

I was responsible for overseeing projects to improve the hacker experience at HackTX in 2015, including 3D-printed trophies, a Slack mentorship system, a voting system for LEDs and the Hacker's Choice award, an interactive infographic, and a hardware hack room.
