Catherine McMahon

Student. Design and Tech at Spectra Hackathon.


I'm a rising high school senior who has studied computer science courses (AP Computer Science, Data Structures, Security, App Development + Design, Networks, Internet) for the past few years and along with some teaching experience, I've been continuously working on tech and design projects. I am looking to get more experience in company or research settings to continually challenge myself and am motivated by building projects or products with creative solutions. Currently a designer and developer for Spectra - The All Ladies Hackathon and offering freelance skills in website or app creation. Open to chat anytime about ideas or opportunities!
