About

I am currently based in New York City (sunny at least for the summer) and attend Stony Brook University as a Computer Science major.

My passion for computer science grew from modifying Flash games (and accidentally breaking and fixing my parent's laptop twice) and only grew ever since.

My interests include traveling, finding great places to eat, playing the viola, working on side projects, and searching for new trip hop.

Background

The things I work with.

I love to learn and work with new frameworks and languages. In the past, I have worked on projects that explored the functionality of operating system specific applications to web frameworks. You can view some of my works here or head over to my LinkedIn profile.

Below are some of the languages that I know for web development. I am mostly a front-end developer but dabbled a bit with back-end with some of my more recent projects like Nimbus.
