Hi, I'm Malina. I design and build things for the web through code. Currently, a full-stack developer at Sanctuary Computer. Previously, a web development student and Opportunity Fund Fellow at General Assembly.

My work experience has been at the intersection of tech and urban planning. Prior to coding, I was honing my skills in community engagement, policy, marketing, and partnerships. I have also organized and hosted the inaugural Brooklyn Tech Triangle Mentorship Hackathon and Queens Tech Meetup series.

I care about making cities better places for people, especially those from underrepresented communities, to thrive. I'm a believer in the infinite possibilities of technology to impact lives and society. While you're here, check out my résumé, explore my project gallery below (click to demo), or shoot me an email at
