Business Intelligence Developer
The coolest things I've done in my career are:
While studying, I was involved in several research projects surrounding music technology. I had the opportunity to present music performance and composition tools at a few academic conferences, and perform with them at venues in Denmark, Colombia (virtually), Mexico, and Spain.
If I could have a super power it would be:
Teleportation – traffic scares me and I’m impatient behind the wheel!
I'm a "closet" fan of:
80s house music / disco (not-so-closet)
The nerdiest thing I do in my spare time is:
Program tools for composing or performing electronic music (while dancing to 80s house/disco). I probably spend more time building tools than actually making music because I’m not a very good musician (my laptop has much better rhythm).
Three things still on my bucket list are:
Eat sushi in Japan
Complete a Forest Gump-esque jog/cycle/walk across some large land area (Ontario? The Maritimes? Canada?)
Surfing vacation somewhere warm
My past experience includes:
I completed my B.A.Sc. and M.A. (Communication and New Media) at McMaster University, focusing my courses and research in Music Technology, Human-Computer Interaction, and Critical Theory. Aiming to improve and formalize my computing knowledge, I pursued my MSc. in Applied Computing at the University of Toronto, focusing in Human-Computer Interaction and Machine Learning. I completed my M.Sc. co-op project at SOTI Inc, creating a beginner-friendly visual programming interface which was awarded with the Student Innovation Award at the University of Toronto Applied Research in Action exposition.
After graduating I worked as a full-stack web developer at Diversio, a Toronto-based start-up that leverages data to help organizations reach diversity and inclusion goals. I’m fascinated by the possibilities and challenges surrounding new technologies, and strive to understand them from technological, sociocultural, and philosophical perspectives.
