My Interests

Passion is something that matters a lot to me.
I try to spend my time doing the things I get really excited about.

Squash

I've been playing squash for over 6 years. I train nearly every day and I love to compete in tournaments across the U.S. My current top ranking is 12th in the Boys Under 17 age division.

Robotics

I joined a FTC team in my Junior year and we placed 13th in the World. In the school year of '15-'16, I am the Build team leader. I hope lead the team to worlds again through hard work and determination.

Hacking

I love building projects. Whether I'm at a Hackathon, fingers flying on my keyboard to put finishing touches on an app, or at home late at night building things of my own, I never cease to enjoy building

Learning

Getting smarter, better, faster, stronger is what drives me every single day. I work hard so I can work better.   

"teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" ~Maimonides

GOT AN EXCITING PROJECT?

I'm currently open for freelance work and Summer 2018 internships.

Things I've done

Some small milestones so far in my journey

My First Internship

Worked at U.S. Squash as a Mobile Development intern, building a prototype app for an app they planned to make.

PennApps XI

Went to my first hackathon, PennApps XI, building MagicPen as my first collaborative project.

August 2015
Hottest Health Hack PennApps

Won the Hottest Health Hack prize at PennApps XII, the largest collegiate hackathon ever. This is my proudest prize, because of the improvement from going to PennApps as my first hackathon, then coming back eight months later and winning a major prize at it.
