Academics

I graduated from the University of Colorado with a BS in Computer Science. I also focused my studies on psychology, linguistics, cognitive science, and human computer interaction.

As a part of the required Computer Science curriculum I completed a senior project with a company called Kurpoof Studios based out of Boulder, CO along with two other students. Kurpoof is a subsidiary of Disney. The senior project I worked on used motion detection algorithms to detect motion through a webcam to register gestures and allow a user to draw on the screen.

Also during my tenure at CU, I had a semi-published paper that I co-authored in the field of cognitive linguistics in regard to the theory of linguistic relativity. You can view the paper here:
