Before going to Stanford I worked as a software engineer for I worked on a team of 9 engineers that developed a large tier 1 service for the website. We developed a massive high performance service that served many millions of requests every five minutes, all representing up to millions of dollars of revenue an hour. Our system did this while maintaining tier 1 standards for availability and integrity of data, and while receiving a huge number of updates in real time.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in computer engineering from Brigham Young University in April 2006, graduating summa cum laude. I studied digital architecture, embedded systems, and FPGAs.
