More About Me

HELLO, I'M MADDIE

I am a passionate developer with a particular fascination with mobile application development.

University of Cincinnati

I am a third year student at UC in a five year engineering co-op program, with plans to graduate in May of 2021. I love being a bearcat and am involved with a lot of technical and social clubs on campus. I am a campus tour guide, so I get to talk to groups of parents and students every week about how much I love the university. Also, I am currently the secretary of ACM at UC, and gave a tech talk about iOS development earlier this fall.

Computer Science

I study computer science at UC and enjoy being involved with the tech community on campus. Last year, I helped plan RevolutionUC, which is UC's student-run hackathon that has +300 attendees. I am a hackathon enthusiast and try to go to as many as possible during the school year because I love learning about new tech and meeting other Ohio hackers.

Mobile Development

I have been developing mobile applications for iOS since 2016. I have experience working on large retail apps as well as small apps I've helped develop from scratch. I enjoy UX and UI design, and try to incorporate innovative and useful features into every app I touch. I want to continue mobile development throughout my career and am currently doing a co-op rotation at Kroger Technology as their Mobile Development Intern.
