"C Programming for Engineers" Tutor Aug. 2016 - Dec. 2016Manhattan, KS

I worked for the K-State College of Engineering as the only tutor for a class of 102 students through the SAS program. I taught CIS 209: "C Programming for Engineers", an introductory programming course for non-computer science engineering majors. In addition to one-on-one tutoring I also taught exam review sessions. Here are some of the evaluations I received.


Software Engineer Intern May 2016 - Aug. 2017Bartlesville, OK

During my first internship with ConocoPhillips, I designed and implemented the front-end and back-end of a web application that ran data migration jobs. For this application I developed a Python REST API that was eventually reused for other applications. In addition to the web application, I worked on an additional project where I configured Raspberry Pis to display data on a dashboard. I also had the opportunity to be 1 of the 3 interns to host the July Bartlesville Users Group meeting to present about Python frameworks.


Google Student Ambassador July 2015 - May 2016Manhattan, KS

As K-State's Google Student Ambassador, I maintained the relationship between Google and K-State as a campus liaison. I did this by hosting Google campus events throughout the year. My most notable event was a 4 hour long "Android Developement Workshop" which was awarded by Google for being in the top 25% of GSA Android events nationwide. In addition to campus events, I helped represent Google at the nation's largest ed tech conference, EDUCAUSE Annual Conference, which had 7,000+ people in attendance.
