I am gay and I am a developer advocate.//
I went to school for computer science, but realized pretty quickly that I did not want to be a software engineer. This led to me taking and TAing classes at Yale’s MBA school as an undergrad in product management, and a senior year internship in developer relations that introduced me to the position. I’ve now worked as a developer advocate in companies of all sizes, as well as a solutions engineer, with a heavy focus on early career enablement, public speaking, and community engagement. I still code, though I feel that I can accomplish more by supporting and educating multiple people at the same time.
