About Me

Howdy! Thanks for checking out my work!

I'm an ardent software engineer and creative problem solver with an insatiable desire to learn new things -- from programming to philosophy and everything in between. While at school I curated my major, allowing me to constantly push my academic boundaries and think about each of the areas I've focused on in an interdisciplinary method.

In my free time I love biking through the labyrinth of New York's streets, exploring new creative applications of technology, and reading.
