I love to work on projects that make a positive impact using my passion for computer science and engineering. At the same time, I also work on certain projects just because I find them fun. Click the button below to see some of the cool projects I have completed.
I was born in Chicago, Illinois and spent the first few years of my life travelling to many starts across the US including Wisconsin, Nevada, Florida, and Connecticut. Then, around the time I was four, my family settled in Massachusetts. I currently live in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts with my parents and my younger brother. I was very active as a child and often spent hours playing with my friends outside, which helped me transform from being a shy kid to the sociable person I am today.
I believe that regardless of age, gender, or ability, everybody should be actively involved in sports as it leads to a healthy life and teaches many lessons that cannot be found in a book. I have been playing soccer almost all my life, and I was on Shrewsbury High School’s Junior Varsity team before coming to Mass. Academy. Recently, I have taken up running as well, and I am training to run my first marathon within the next two years. I also enjoy working out at the gym during my free time.
In my free time, I love to watch movies and hang out with friends and play soccer. I also have musical experience, as I have been played string instruments for 8 years and have experience playing the viola, cello, and double bass. I am also a stereotypical Boston sports fan who is often busy watching his teams make deep runs into the postseason every year. In addition, during autumn, I often take road trips to see the fall foliage with my family and we love skiing during the winter as well.
