I am a mathematician, an educator, and a programmer. I worked as a web developer from 2007 until 2014. I took a sabbatical from tech to teach mathematics and programming. I resumed my software career working as a software developer doing machine vision for a startup in Scottsdale. I working in San Mateo for a semiconductor company producing microprocessor IP for the RISC-V architecture.
I am a proponent of functional programming. I am interested in dependent types as well as type theory as a foundation in mathematics. In 2017, I was an active member of Functional First Phoenix.
I remember a day in elementary school when I looked down at my calculator and thought to myself, "I already know how to plus, minus, times, and divide. All I need to learn now is x^y, sin, cos, tan, and √ and I'll know all of mathematics." I later learned I was mistaken.
