behind the screen 👩🏻‍💻

I'm currently a 4th year computer science with business applications major and aspiring product manager.

Born and raised in Southern California stereotypically means surfing in the summer, snowboarding in the winter, and lots of brunch. All of which are 100% true(on the weekends and pre-quarantine, so hit me up for my Yelp bookmarks). I'm also a big music-festival-goer and avid traveler, so catch me at the next Coachella or at the airport!

I originally wanted to major in criminal psychology (shoutout to Hotch from Criminal Minds)! I even took a course on the philosophy of evil. However, somewhere along these lines, I realized I wanted to help people in other ways (also because criminal psychology = thinking of dead bodies and blood).

My goal? Making products viable and valuable, and to always keep the customer in mind.

...and to eat at every Marugame Udon location in the world 🍜
