More About Me

HELLO, I'M MADDIE

I am a passionate iOS developer who loves design, public speaking, and tacos.

University of Cincinnati

I am a fourth year student at UC with plans to graduate in May of 2021. If I tell you how much I am involved in on campus you probably wouldn't believe me. I am a campus tour guide, so I get to talk to groups of parents and students every week about how much I love being a bearcat, which has inspired me to get a minor in communications. I am currently the vice president of ACM at UC, where I have given tech talks about UX design and iOS development.

Computer Science

I study computer science at UC and enjoy being involved with the tech community on campus. My favorite event of the year is RevolutionUC, which is UC's student-run hackathon that had +380 attendees last year. I have helped organized the event for the past three years and this year I will act as Hacker Experience Lead, Branding Lead, and Marketing Lead as well as assisting the logistics team. I absolutely love hackathons and the way that it brings the tech community together, which can lead to some truly inspiring and mind-blowing projects.

Mobile Development

I have been developing mobile apps for iOS since 2016. I have a wide range of experience from working on large beauty retail and grocery apps to consulting and contracting for startups. Coding brings me so much joy but I have a secret love for UX and UI design. I want to continue iOS development throughout my career and am very excited to see where it takes me. I am currently looking for a co-op for Summer 2020.
