Software Developer and Continuous Learner

Who am I?

As a passionate Software Developer, I am always looking for something new and challenging to dive into. I began tinkering with technology at a very early age, and have been advancing my knowledge ever since.


I believe that it is important to treat your work as more than just a job. Having been fascinated by technology for as long as I can remember, I'm always excited to dive into the next technology I discover.


I dream big, and work hard to find myself one step closer to my goals each and every day. I treat having to overcome obstacles as a fact of life, and try hard to keep myself motivated every day.


I consider human interaction crucial to more than just at work. In fact, it is a core aspect of our day to day lives. I find working in groups extremely valuable, and take every chance I get to explore the same ideas through other peoples' eyes.
