Welcome to my experiment of a hand-coded website – so kind of you to stop by!

A bit of my journey:
I’m a professional namer at Google, where I’ve had the honor of being part of several marketing teams since 2013 and attending an executive training at Wharton (here are my notes).
I earned an engineering degree from Stanford University’s Mechanical Engineering department. I also completed the premed curriculum because, before Google recruited me, I planned to follow my parents’ path and become a doctor. I graduated with honors and was invited to join Tau Beta Pi (in my third year, a year ahead of most invitees) and Phi Beta Kappa.
I have always loved creating art, whether with painted lines or written ones. In my first year at Stanford, poet Eavan Boland selected my entry for 1st place in Stanford’s Urmy–Hardy Prize in Poetry, and after I graduated, I spent the summer coalescing all my observations from cadaver anatomy labs into a poem published in Stanford School of Medicine’s literary journal. I studied oil painting as a child, explored graphic design in college, and am now learning 3D modeling and animation with Blender.

To celebrate 30 years of the Americans with Disabilities Act, we asked Googlers what the #ADA30 means to them. “Every school I’ve been allowed to attend, every job I’ve been accepted to, every time I have entered a room and been the first one like me to enter that room—I've had all these opportunities because my Disabled elders fought to ensure the #ADA. In short, I owe them my life. “The ADA reminds us that access is our right. Access is our civil right. Access is our human right. Disabled people said it, the ADA validates it, and now and every day, it’s up to each of us to act on it. “As we reflect on how far we’ve gotten, I want us to imagine how much further we can go. What would it be like to live in a world that not only accepts Disabled people, but loves us?” says Googler @aubrieality. Watch today’s story to hear from other Googlers, and tap the link in bio to learn about how Google is striving to make the world more accessible for all.

I have a rare form of muscular dystrophy. The more I use my muscles, the weaker they get. Some of the basics:
Not every disabled person likes to be asked about their disabilities, but if you meet me, you’re welcome to ask me questions. I’m Disabled and proud, and I want us all to include disability in more conversations. If you want to learn more about disability, check out the resources I’ve put together at cripcorps.com.
Let’s have a conversation about:
If you're curious, I wrote a life plan with more detail. I call it my Archiridion.
