San Francisco Bay Area

Most recently, I worked as a software engineer for Google. Before that, I taught high school computer science for twelve years, was a graduate student studying theoretical linguistics (during which time I taught Spanish), and before that I was a Teach for America corps member. I majored in Music and Math as an undergrad.

I'm interested in computer science, language, and education. Recently, I'm very drawn to functional approaches and I love working in Scala. I'm competent in Scala, Java, and Python, and would need to brush up on JavaScript, C, C++, or Lisp. For teaching, I've used Scala, Java, Python, Racket (formerly PLT Scheme), and even ProLog, once.
