About Me

I'm a software developer with background in computer science. I have experience in web and mobile application development (iOS) and data engineering in an agile environment. I'm in the process of completing my masters in Artificial Intelligence and land a summer internship (June 2021).

I have a passion for learning and solving problems. There is no better and more exciting field to be in than software; it's continuously changing the traditional industries with emerging technologies. In my free time, I like to work on my personal projects using the best resources and practices available.  I believe it’s in the execution, putting ideas into practice, that we learn. I strive to channel the things I've learned into crafting beautiful software and an engaging user experience.

I have a multitude to projects I would like to work on, unfortunately there's only 24 hours in a day, therefore majority of my energy is boiled down to two projects. 1. A "new" static site generator (you're probably thinking "**sigh** just another ssg generator, is this even necessary", but I promise this is different and I hope it will improve the productivity of many, especially avid note takers). 2. Scraping websites to collect data for a site similar to ourworldindata.org with emphasis on travel.

I’m always interested in meeting new people within the industry and expanding my community. Say hello if you’d like to discuss job opportunities, collaborate with me or simply have a conversation.

P.S. I'm in the process of revamping my portfolio. Stay tuned.
