Hi, I’m Alex. As a Senior Engineer, I focus on frontend development for web and mobile. I studied Physics in college but soon gravitated toward software products as a flexible tool to help people and solve human problems.
Before joining Cantina, I worked at Verily Life Sciences as a Software Engineer focused on feature development for Onduo, a Type-II diabetes management app. My past experience also includes engineering voice and Google Assistant features into Wear OS smartwatches for Google; it remains one of the biggest accomplishments of my career. Outside of work, I volunteer with Code for Boston, where I have the chance to mentor budding engineers and help lead projects related to both immigration and the opioid crisis in Massachusetts.

Other Fun Facts
I had the fortunate (or perhaps unfortunate) luck of being made fun of during a taping of the Conan O’Brien Show. To be fair, it was hard not to stick out since I wore a bright pink shirt.
