Hey there! You're reading my resume! This is me: ===> Ada Diana Avery <===. To contact me, send an electronic carrier pigeon to spam+jobs <at> squircle <dot> space (remove the spam+ prefix!).

I want to give people more control over their data and how it is used to help them live a more private life. I also enjoy exploring the design and implementation of programming languages!

I graduated from Harvey Mudd College in 2013 with a joint degree in computer science and mathematics.

I started working at Apple as a Software Engineer in 2013.

These days, I spend most of my on-the-job time on being tech lead for projects, designing architectures, assisting others with debugging, and teaching coworkers about relevant tech arcana. On the occasion where I my job involves writing code, it is mostly in the C-family languages (C, C++, Objective-C), Swift, or the occasional scripting language (Python, Ruby, shell script). In my free time I experiment in the dark arts of metaprogramming with Common Lisp! Behold the evil spells I have cast!
