About me

Hi there! I am a student at Florida International University studying Computer Science. I am an experienced software developer with a focus on web development. I am also an executive-board member of Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE), a Computer Science honor society, at FIU which aims to promote computer science in the Miami community and is sponsored by companies such as Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, and more.

Recently I was an intern at Boatrax where I developed on an IoT platform with Node js, MySQL, and MongoDB on the back-end, and a web application with React JS on the front-end. I am also an organizer forShellHacks, UPE's annual hackathon, where I helped make the 2018 website and am currently planning the technical workshops for ShellHacks 2019

I enjoy coding and have a passion for learning new technologies to improve my skillset. I have done lots of fun projects in Java, JavaScript, Python, and PHP you can check them out on my GitHub. Outside of tech I enjoy fitness, gaming, piano, spending time with my friends, and helping out my club.
