I'm Hugo, a senior at Northwestern University studying Computer Science and Entrepreneurship. I mostly focus on full-stack development, but have recently been exploring creative applications for artificial intelligence.

I've had the opportunity to work in startups, contract for non-profits, engineer internal APIs at a huge corporation, and create numerous full-stack applications as a freelance developer.

On campus, I am busy organizing WildHacks, Northwestern's annual collegiate hackathon, and tinkering with my own projects in The Garage.

This August, I will be returning to Google full-time as a Software Engineer, building out core Ads infrastructure in New York City.
