designer + developer

Hi! I'm Ellen,

a third-year computer science major at UC Berkeley, as well as a proponent of effective design and efficient code. As an instructor of the Web Design DeCal and a web developer for Innovative Design, I find a lot of joy in crafting websites — and, really, coding in general. This summer, I'll be working as a software development engineer intern at Amazon.

Although designing, coding, and teaching consume ~92% of my student life, I spend the other 8% baking cakes and browsing cooking blogs. Talk to me about the Broadway musical Hamilton or your favorite Netflix shows!

If you'd like to reach out, you can email me at — or take a look at my resume or Github.
