I worked on the Django app as part of the platform team. During my two years at Venmo, I got to work on all sorts of different projects such as:
- revamping Venmo's user search with ElasticSearch
- integrating with third-party APIs to make linking a bank account to Venmo a more seamless process
- overhauling Venmo's friendship and user request logic, designing everything from the Cassandra and MySQL schemas up to the RESTful API consumed by internal and external clients
- re-architecting Venmo's funding source schema, logic, and API, and migrating existing data into the new model as part of a team of three developers, building the backend foundation for Pay with Venmo

UTBM · Spring 2013
I helped design the database for an Android application, and cloned the application for the web using only PL/SQL.
(This was for the class, I wouldn't recommend writing frontend code in PL/SQL.)
The Welcome Club (Welcome) is a student association at UTBM which was created to better the experience of foreign students, whether exchange or degree students, at UTBM. I started participating in the club's activities during my first semester at UTBM and joined the board my second year, holding various positions up to Club President my final year.
Travels & Photography
One of the main reasons why I chose UTBM after finishing high school was its wide array of international partnerships and opportunities. I studied abroad twice, going first to Norway in 2011, and then to Chile in 2013. I'm an amateur photographer, preferring wildlife and nature photography, and you can view some of my photos from northern Norway and Svalbard on Flickr, or from various trips around Chile and Peru on Facebook.
