Hi I'm Carter Watson! I grew up in northern Utah but have recently relocated to the LA metro area. I graduated from Utah State University in December 2023 with my B.S. in Computer Science.

I have two years of experience working as a software engineer in the aerospace & defense industry. In that time I've learned a lot: programming best practices and standards, CI/CD pipelines, system architechure, and so much more.

Outside of work I enjoy cycling, concerts, and traveling. I just completed my first century (100mi) ride this last summer. My favorite concert ever was Bleachers at the Ogden Amphitheater. My most recent trip was to Banff National Park, where my family and I visited Lake Louise and hiked to the Lake Agnes Tea House.
