About Me

I am a full stack software engineer and developer who has been creating websites, programming, and making ideas come to life since age 9. As a kid, I had always been intrigued by computers and the technology that drives them. Since then, I have gained plenty of experience in software development and computing ranging across many different programming languages for both personal and business applications.

Outside of software development, I enjoy spending my free time with cooking, working out, investing, traveling, building computers, playing games, astrophotography, and learning new skills.
