I believe in creating resources to solve problems.
I have degrees from UC Davis and Columbia University, and received training in web development from AcademyPGH. I seek out snorkeling spots, ice cream, Monterey cypress, and fireflies. I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and previously lived in Northern California, and New York City. Before moving to Pittsburgh, I did health research, policy/law work, and taught at the local community college. I advocate for Deaf issues and talk about my experience at the UC Davis Centennial Convocation. I document my life in MG's Writings. I’m up for new challenges and creative projects. Contact me if you'd like to collaborate.
text911 mobile app will be built in React Native. Users can text 911, send an image of their emergency, send out specific details of their location with their address (floor, classroom number, bus or train line/car), and send out specific details of their emergency. We also work with the existing 911 technology stack where the user can write a text and the text is then converted to voice. text911 calls 911 on their behalf, playing details of their text message on a quick loop to dispatchers. text911 prototype made using Sketch, inVision.
