I’ve got some weird hobbies, from board games and herpetology, to old VWs and wild food foraging. If you want to hear more, drop me a line and introduce yourself, or follow me on Instagram (link in footer)!
Currently looking for my next opportunity! I am a part-time CSCI student at Palomar College (online), former 2020 Blizzard intern, and 2015 Humboldt State biology graduate!
My most recent employer was a Blizzard Entertainment, where I worked as a product management intern for the Overwatch game site team 100% remotely.
Prior to this, I was a Technical Sales & Marketing Manager with a tiny metrology software company based in Colorado. I was in this role for over 2 and a half years, working 100% remotely. During most of my time with this company, I was the only employee. Thus, I got to see a very wide range of tasks depending on what the company needs were at any given time. Seeking better opportunity and healthy work culture, I applied to intern for Blizzard.
As I have time, I take extra work doing freelance technical writing. My clients have ranged from biotech companies to small game studios. I have written fiction, informational blog posts, technical articles, promotional web content, how-to manuals, and all kinds of other stuff for my clients!
Before my career transition, my work experience had revolved around biotech. I was a lead histotechnician for a small biotech company in Santa Barbara, and I spent some time working as a research histotech for Colorado University at the Anschutz medical campus in the pulmonary toxicology lab. It was in my time there that I decided to make a transition into computer science.
