ABOUT ME

"Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire."    - Arnold H. Glasow

I grew up and went to college in Texas, studying Computer Science at Texas A&M University. I discovered a passion for computers playing video games and playing around with HTML in my childhood, but didn't realize that it was a lifelong career for me until my first programming class my senior year of high school. I fell in love rapidly. 

That passion has only been further realized by my internships at Microsoft and projects in university, as the more I learned, the more I realized that software is a delicate race to solve problems efficiently, elegantly, and sustainably, and I wanted to be a part of that.
