I teach and contribute to the curriculum at Epicodus, working with students from a wide range of backgrounds to become effective problem solvers and programmers. I helped put together the C#/.NET curriculum for the program, and I am also a Spring 2015 graduate. I love making tech accessible to those who may not have had the fortune to grow up surrounded by it, and seeing tech grow into an increasingly diverse field.
