I love designing, building and improving systems. I'm a New Zealander living in New York City, working as a Product Manager on Google Maps. 🥝 🐯 🗽
I worked on growth initiatives within Google's products for kids and families at the company's Mountain View, California headquarters.
I designed and secured engineering and product approval for specific improvements to the Android parental supervision onboarding process.
I lead the team that built Princeton Courses, a powerful web app for browsing Princeton University course listings and evaluations.
Princeton Courses is the most popular student-created course searching tool, and was used by 45% of the student population last semester.Visit Princeton Courses
Keep Asking makes it easy to create, distribute, and manage recurring feedback surveys. The app empowers surveyors to administer surveys with minimal, constant-time effort.
I built Keep Asking as an human-computer interaction research project as part of my computer science degree.Visit Keep Asking
Between my second and third years of university, I worked as a software engineering intern on MongoDB's Node.js Driver team in New York City.
I developed the Node.js driver's support for Change Streams. My implementation was the first across all of MongoDB's many language-specific drivers, and involved iteratively providing feedback on the specification to the server team.
I also collaborated with another intern to implement wire protocol compression in the driver, making communications to the database faster.
I was the primary teaching assistant of Princeton's premier entrepreneurship course, High-Tech Entrepreneurship, taught by Professor Chris Kuenne.
I worked with Professor Kuenne to redesign the course syllabus, managed course logistics, and provided feedback to students to help them improve.
