Professional Bio

I find technology fascinating since it enables us to build and create things with very little resources. I became a Software Engineer because it is fun and challenging, but more importantly because with technology we can change the world. I love constantly learning and innovating every aspect of our lives. My favorite language is C, and it is impressive how much of our infrastructure depends on code written with it. I'm disciplined, grateful, and friendly, and when I'm not working, I enjoy traveling and being outdoors.
