In 2008 I graduated from a small school called Wheaton College in Norton, MA. There, I majored in Computer Science. I took many different electives as well, including courses in Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, History, Italian, Physics, Economics, and English. I decided to attend this school because I felt that having a well-rounded education (along with intense work inside of CS) was more important to me than a purely technical education.
While at Wheaton, I studied abroad in the UK for a semester. I took all technical classes here: 5 in total.
In 2011 I graduated from Brandeis University with a Master’s degree in Software Engineering.
Two days after I graduated from Wheaton College in 2008, I started working for Raytheon in Tewksbury, MA as a Software Engineer. Starting in May 2012, I moved to Connecticut and started work with Sila Solutions Group in Shelton.
I love technology in general: cell phones, computers, TVs, stereos; the list goes on and on. I enjoy snowboarding in my free time, as well as cars. My current car is a 2010 Audi S4. I enjoy spending time with my friends, and especially going out to eat in Boston. There are so many great restaurants and I really love food. I am also an avid fan of beer; the microbrewery, craft beers. There are so many different flavors and types that it never gets old and it’s especially interesting to see the different breweries in person.
