Name: Carlyn Lee
About: I'm a software engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Growing up in SoCal I had the advantage of year-round warm weather and close proximity to the Pacific Ocean to indulge in water sports. Now that I live near the San Gabriel Mountains I'm developing terrestrial abilities and learning to climb rocks.
I was immediately hooked on Rock climbing since it's similar to programming in that you approach the problem of climbing up rocks with your body ( hardware) to execute algoritms and sequences ( software) to solve it. I'm often at the gym working on software updates by training core and finger strength or endurance, etc. The gym where I train, Arcadia Rock Climbing, provides a good virtual environment and networking architecture to share beta.
I've also developed a strong interest in cycling thanks to the availability of apps that accurately track performance. Cycling is a platform to combine my passions for sport and computing. Plus it's a great way to explore new places and I love riding fast.
