Give me a cup of tea, point me towards a keyboard, enter the Konami Code, and I'll give you code.
I am an undergrad of Software Engineering at the University of Waterloo, I spend most of my time programming. I've developed a passion for programming for efficiency, back-end and game development.
Outside of work, I've also developed some unique interests. I like to sketch, play guitar, design and run Dungeons and Dragons campaigns, do some powerlifting, and always be learning new things.
If you're curious about what I've done, feel free to look at my resume, projects, github, or linkedin.
I am only a student, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very intense career.
These are the things I'm particularly good at. Don't see what you're looking for here? Don't worry, I learn extremely quickly and can pick up new things on the fly.
All of these and more are available on github
