I graduated with a master’s degree in computer science from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. I began my career as a software developer at Referentia Systems Incorporated. For over two years, I helped develop a network performance management software called LiveAction. Then I was hired as a Java web developer by the University of Hawaiʻi. In this position, I upgraded Laulima, a learning management system that is used in face-to-face, online, and hybrid classes. I am currently employed by NIC Incorporated and living in Honolulu, Hawaii. I develop web applications for government agencies of the State of Hawaii.
