IntentCoin is a blockchain implementation of Kickstarter and GoFund me with a democratic twist. We built smart contracts off of the Ethereum server using Solidity, Web3, and MetaMask.

Experience .

JP Morgan Chase

Technology Analyst Intern

Summer 2018, Jersey City, NJ

I was placed in an awesome Network Engineering team that was starting to transition into developing software to increase their efficiency and bandwith. We developed a user-friendly automation backend in Java SpringBoot for migration tasks, and a strong multi-database querying tool in C# with LINQ.

About Me .

Origins

My journey into coding started Summer 2017. I was formerly a Government and Physics major, but decided to concentrate in Mathematics in early 2017.

My first major hackathon was three months later, Fall 2017, at Code For Good by JP Morgan. I kept changing my mind about going, up until the last possible second. I considered going back halfway through my two-hour commute, but I decided to just show up. 24 hours later I found myself jumping in the air with my team after winning the entire competition! One week later, we were offered internships into JP Morgan's Technology Analayst Program.

Talk about a lucky way to enter the field of tech?!

MLH 2018 Season

I wanted to keep competing. I wanted to keep learning, so I did my research and found out that there were many college hackathons by this organization called MLH.

From January 2018 to May 2018 I attended 9 hackathons in 7 different states. Each time I always felt like the under dog because it was easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of talented developers there are out there.

Hackathon after another, I met recruiters and engineers from startups, Twitter, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, JP Morgan, and other amazing companies. I can't believe I had the insane opportunity to make friends with programmers, entrepreneurs, and anyone really.

Last Words

Friends always wonder where I find the time for this, especially during the school year. I think if you're truly passionate about something, then you'll show up.

You'll show up even though you think there are 400 other hackers in that room better than you. You'll show up even though there are people in that room from Ivy Leagues or Google or Facebook. You'll show up even though you think you're a terrible programmer from a college most people don't know about.

You'll show up because you're a hacker.
