About

About Myself

I am a junior software developer attending my second year of university studying computing science at Simon Fraser University. Programming started as a hobby when I was fifteen and has proved to continue to greatly impact my life as it grows into my professional life. I first started programming in JavaScript before learning Python, C and C++.

While learning these languages, I became familiarized with somewhat more miscellaneous skills such as node.js, HTML / CSS, the UNIX command line, and Arduino. I often update this website to include my latest programming projects; however, many of my projects are never converted to pages linked to from this website and exist only on my Github.
