Hi, I'm Elana!

I'm a software developer, musician, and educator based in NYC.

✨ About ✨

I'm currently working as a software engineer at an edtech company called Renaissance Learning.

Before that, I was an instructor for Girls Who Code's Summer Immersion Program. I graduated from Fordham University, where I studied computer science and music. In the past, I've done on-campus developer evangelism with Microsoft and Clarifai and assisted with research at the NYU Music and Audio Research Lab.

In my free time, I enjoy playing classical piano and doing improv.
