As a Udemy instructor I bring a unique background of software development and instructional design. I started programming at age 15, having taught myself HTML and CSS, and went on to complete an undergraduate degree in computer science at Columbia University. After 8 years working as a software developer, project manager, business analyst in the financial industry, I decided to switch gears and took on the role of program coordinator for a graduate program in instructional technology. This position sparked my interest in instructional design and I'm currently working on my Masters degree in this field from Touro College. I’m thrilled to be joining Udemy and I look forward to sharing my knowledge with this virtual community!
