Since 1998, I have developed software applications for Fortune 500 companies, including AIG and Praxair. I served as a senior software programmer for the technology division of Performance Media Group (PMG), contributing to their success, including placement on the Inc. 5000. I was later promoted to director of development for PMG's travel social network, where I also built software for Apple Vacations and Conde Naste. As a partner at Barbella Digital, Inc., I designed and developed data-driven applications and messaging systems. Currently, I am a web application developer for the University of Virginia's School of Medicine.

After studying religion and philosophy in college, I put my education on hold to pursue a software programming career. Later I returned to college and received a Bachelor's of Science in General Psychology. I am currently pursuing a Master's of Science in Applied Research.
