I am a software engineer with a strong passion for learning and problem-solving. I have plenty of experience with cross-platform app development with frameworks like React Native and Flutter while also having experience with web development using an array of tools like PHP, jQuery, HTML, CSS, and some content management systems like WordPress. I have also started getting my feet wet in the machine learning area of software so I have experience with python and some machine learning libraries. While I am only just beginning my journey in software being a new grad this May, I am very excited to continue learning.

Aside from being a software engineer, I really enjoy any type of recreational sport. A lot of the time, I find myself playing ultimate frisbee with friends or pickup basketball when I can find the time. I also really enjoy building things, I built my own coffee table and am currently on an endeavour to rebuild the back deck of my house. Aside from the more active things I do, I also really enjoy working on my laptop or computer as I've recently delved into Arch Linux and absolutely love it. I hope to build my own package for other Arch users to use one day.

When I'm not doing any of the before-mentioned activities, I often find myself reading articles about just about anything. However, my favorite thing to read about is space. I could spend hours reading and talking about space. My phone usually keeps me up to date on any big discoveries that happen off-planet.
