About Me

I am a hard-working, dedicated software developer who is always eager to experiment with new and emerging technologies. I aspire to write software that makes a real impact in consumers' lives. When I'm not writing code or reading tech blogs, I can be found playing the guitar, cooking, or at the squat rack (or all three together)! I am currently looking for a Software Engineering internship for Fall 2017.

I am a second-year Software Engineering student at the University of Waterloo. Throughout my continuous education I have been exposed to various Computer Science and mathematical concepts that I apply to solving interesting problems every day.
