About Me

Hello, Jackie here! I'm a senior computer science student at Northeastern University who's always seeking new challenges and opportunities for adventure. I'm currently spending time with my family and doing side projects with scikit-learn. Later this summer, I’ll be returning to Square for a full-stack web development internship using Ember.js and Ruby on Rails.

I’m passionate about data science, machine learning, and backend software engineering.

My goal is to always be improving as a person and a professional. That's why I have a Level-Up List.

I spend my free time hanging out with friends, searching for the perfect cufflink/necktie/brogue shoe combo, and shaking up quality cocktails. If you ever see me at a tech conference, say hello! I’m the really short one with lots of energy.

I'll be graduating this December and am looking for full-time roles starting in January 2018. If you’re looking for an enthusiastic software engineer to join your team, email me!

Fun fact: I once caught a Pokemon while trekking a glacier in Argentina.

What's a Level-Up List?

It’s a mixture of difficult challenges in the style of Joel Runyon’s Impossible List and skill-building goals designed to help me grow. As I complete things, they’ll be crossed off and replaced with harder challenges. Here's a preview:

Get In Touch

I'm always interested in hearing about data science and software engineering opportunities (including pro bono work for nonprofits!), so feel free to email me to start a conversation.

If you want to chat about Ancient Rome, personal finance, travel hacking, craft cocktails, or the state of American politics, tweet at me.
