ABOUT ME

I am currently a student at Boston University pursuing a BA/MS dual-degree in Computer Science. Having always been surrounded by technology, I have an inherent curiosity of what powered everything behind it, which naturally led me to become interested in programming.
Being involved with computer science and the tech community allows me to explore and share new exciting technologies and tools alongside others with the same passions. The ability to continually be learning and pursuing more knowledge is at the core of my goal of helping the general population gain more computer literacy.

More About Me

Beyond tech, I am fascinated by music and the emotional impact that it has on us. I play the guitar and bass casually and these two instruments have shaped my music preferences to what they are today.
My top genres and top 3 artists of each as follows:





Buddy Guy


Marcus Miller

Miles Davis


IDK I don't really listen to that much more pop.


Note this is not a comprehensive list, and there are many more bands and artists that I listen to on a daily basis
