Product Engineer, Asana

I'm a Product Engineer at Asana. I joined in September 2019. Prior to working at Asana, I was a Software Engineer at Google working on features in Google Docs and Slides.

As an Asana Advisor, I can help you with getting started organizing your projects in Asana, especially for software engineering projects.


I'm really excited to help nonprofits with their Asana projects! I think that Asana can really help to make any organization more efficient and provide more transparency to enable everyone to work with trust, clarity, and confidence.

I'm very passionate about finding more opportunities for people of color in the software engineering industry. For the past four years, I have worked with a program called iMentor to partner with one NYC high school student and mentor him on how to get into college and further, how to build a career in software engineering. I found that opportunity to be extremely fulfilling and I am constantly looking for opportunities to help people gain access to spaces they might not have had access to otherwise.
