What I do

Systems Architecture

As I've started leading more projects, system architecture has become a fundamental point of interest. I'm fascinated how Amazon is able to stay online with a 99.9% uptime and how Netflix handles complex traffic with thousands of individual microservices.

Mobile Development

Recently, I've led and worked on two different mobile apps using Google's Flutter framework. In the course of three months per app, our team went from the idea stage to a fully functional prototype. See the relevant projects below.

Coding Tutorials

In my free time, I've been attempting to document my learning and hobby projects on Youtube. I've found that making videos helps me better understand difficult topics, and it's a small way of giving back to the community.

My Work

Who I am

Developer based out of Northern VA

I'm a software developer by trade, but you can also call me a project manager, college student, or entrepreneur. Pursuing my love of technology, I have built projects in a variety of disciplines including embedded systems, web development, and mechanical engineering.

I don't like to define myself by the work I've done. I define myself by the work I want to do. Skills can be taught, personality is inherent. I prefer to keep learning, continue challenging myself, and do interesting things that matter.
