TEDxYouth '10: Social Media and Tablet Technology in Revolutionizing Classroom Learning

I don't believe in fluff. I believe in breaking boundries and accepting mistakes.

I have been fortunate to work with some of the brightest minds and hottest companies, allowing me to grow as a software engineer and entrepreneur. I have extensive full-stack web development experience across multiple industries. I am currently looking for summer opportunities for the summer of 2015 in software engineering.

All my work and achievements below follow this basic formula:

Passion + Talent + Perserverence

Software Engineering Intern - Algorithms

May - August 2014


Outstanding Sophomore Award

April 2014


Software Engineering Intern - Growth

May - July 2013

As Prezi's first intern, I have seen this company grow from a million users to over 30 million in the two years I have been with. I have impacted many aspects of this company from finance, marketing, support, and lately product development. Working with some brilliant minds and individuals has made me understand the struggles of being successful; a fact that Prezi has been cash flow positive since the first year of operation.

International Grand Prize

October 2013



August 2013 - July 2014



January 2013 - Current

Life is not always about personal opportunities; I realized that working on software engineering for the improvement of society was a fantastic combination. My research lab at Georgia Tech focuses on international development and technology and I specialize on Aggie, a social media analytics and tracking software used in elections in Nigeria, Libya, and Kenya. It is a very powerful visualization software; my role being to redesign, create, and maintain the new and improved Aggie 2.0. I'm very excited to work on a project that can directly touch and improve living conditions and corruption in those regions.


November 2011

It all started with a "What if ". What if the newly released iPad and onset of social network could change and influence our world, and especially in the field of education. In hindsight, our vision is always 20/20, but at the time I examined a very controversial topic that few people were willing to accept the concepts of MOOC's and tablets. I discussed the use of social media and tablet technology in revolutionizing classroom technology, a talk that was very well received.

Carlsson Porfolio

November 2010 – May 2012

Carlsson Portfolio is a luxury gateway planner company that strives to offer their clients the finest in terms of luxury and quality. I was hired as the head developer for creating both the iPhone and iPad applications for their company. This is where I learned to combine code into a meaninful end user experience. Apple featured both my applications for CP Greece in the New & Noteworthy categories at the time of launch.
