About Me

I am a college freshman studyingscreen-shot-2016-12-17-at-10-36-15-am Computer Science for my bachelor’s degree at the University of Washington. I was admitted directly to UW’s CSE program this spring.

I aim to become a software engineer at a technology company working in the area of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning. I also have the desire to start my own tech company someday.

I love iOS development with Swift, and have released two apps to the App Store. The later app, myPredictedGrade, has been downloaded in 65 countries by over 1,000 students in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. I also have experience messing around with Python, which I have used to create a wide variety of projects. My most current endeavor is creating a cryptocurrency in Python, which I have affectionately named “Lamecoin”. This summer, I learned JavaScript/web development during a three-month-long internship at BSD Code and Design Academy in Hong Kong. I also have some experience with Java, and I will be picking it up again this fall in my Computer Science classes. I would also like to learn how to use databases like SQL more effectively to become more of a “full stack developer”.

Some things I enjoy doing in my free time include:

  • Being a nerd on StackOverflow
  • Playing rugby
  • Jamming on the guitar
  • Debating (both formally and informally)

Here are five fun facts about me:

  1.   I cannot whistle for the life of me
  2.   I am known for occasionally taking 30 minutes or more to eat a muffin
  3.   Death Cab for Cutie is my favorite band
  4.   I own seven stuffed alpacas
  5.   I cannot stand cauliflower or dill
