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

Started learning computer science, after my brother's suggestion to take Computer Science 1 freshman year in High School
Started learning to build iOS applications with Objective-C through free online courses offered by Stanford
Built my first app. A simple quiz game that questioned users about the United States.
Worked at U.S. Squash as a Mobile Development intern, building a prototype app for an app they planned to make.
Went to my first hackathon, PennApps XI, building MagicPen as my first collaborative project.
Won Best Application at my second hackathon, CodeDay NYC. My team members and I also formed Isometric Studios, an iOS app freelancing company.
Built Smith at HackBCA II, winning overall 2nd Place prize.
Announced a winner at the "Dream it. Code it. Win it." competition hosted by the MIT Club of NYC
Did a second internship at U.S. Squash as a Mobile Development intern, this time building a live scoring application for refereeing matches.
Hired for my first freelance job with a project that used OpenCV, an open source computer vision framework. My employer hired me for four more successive jobs after completing the first one.
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.
Started my first website, a portfolio of my projects and some information. Although it is a bootstrapped website, I feel like my web development skills have improved tremendously.
