Since graduating, I helped build out Google’s first office in sub-Saharan Africa. As part of a 2-person office that eventually grew to 6 offices and 100+ team members, I had a hand in multiple office build-outs and led an array of deployment projects within Google's Corporate Engineering and Technical Services organizations. Now back in the Bay Area since 2016, I am working on Google's online payment offerings, leading technical integration with top tier merchants. Along the way, I've had the joy of co-writing the Grammy award-winning Baba Yetu with fellow Stanford Talisman alum, Christopher Tin, and continue to advance my lifelong love for sacred music through my church community.
