About me

I’m a third-year Computer Science Honours student at the University of British Columbia in the beautiful city of Vancouver.

[as excited as I am that you want to know more about me, why not play some of the songs while you read]

“Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” I have no idea. I am nowhere near knowing what I want to be doing in the future; cliché or not, I’m determined to explore things that interest me. Right now, in development I want to explore full-stack development, game programming, artificial intelligence and its implications.

I realized that I want to check out designing and writing too. I’m on the path to take a dual major at UBC in Visual Arts. “Will it help you get software engineering jobs?” to be honest I don’t know and that’s not why I want to do this. I’m privileged enough to be able to choose what I want to learn and for me it makes sense to do both. I want to explore sketching, digital art and creative writing. (I’ll try to add some of the designs I do when I get actually good on here)

I’m trying to write more and with that I’m going to publish some stuff on Medium when I have the time. If you use Notion a lot, I’ve made a couple of templates to get you finessing in your work. Go check out some of my Spotify playlists to find some good music.
