I received a grant in 2011 from Stanford to travel to São Paulo and document graffiti art. These are some of the photographs I took with a Canon 7D camera and a 24-70MM lens. They were displayed at Stanford in 2011.

While studying at Stanford I took a few painting classes and received two grants for painting projects. My paintings were publicly displayed in Gallery 160, and at Stanford's art museum, the Cantor Arts Center. I also painted a sculpture for an exhibit called "True Colors: Rediscovering Pigments on Greco-Roman Marble Sculpture." Read More Here

I have worked seriously on 2 major web projects, while contributing to and consulting on a handful of other small projects. In all cases I have worked as a full-stack engineer, and in the case of Tutor Matching Service, an Andreessen-Horowitz and Y-Combinator-funded company, I built the core functionality of the backend and frontend from scratch while also managing business development and strategy in my position as cofounder. While at Tutor Matching Service, we grew to partner with over 30 schools including NYU, Caltech, and Purdue. Tutor Matching Service was also accepted into the Stanford StartX mentorship program, Mentor Labs for two consecutive classes.

At Smoopa, a retail shopping startup, I was hired as the first full-stack engineer. At Smoopa, I was responsible for managing the website and designing many of the web views for the iOS and Android apps.
