About Me

I'm an Information Science student at Cornell University, aspiring full-stack engineer, and big brother. My most recent internship is with IBM Watson in New York, NY, developing applications using the Watson Developer Cloud services and APIs. At Cornell, I am the Vice Director for Slope Day, a Front End Web Developer for Big Red Hacks, and an advisor for Science Olympiad at Cornell.

My personal design philosophy considers everyone involved in the process of creating or using something on the web. Whether you are a developer trying to understand my logic in a web server or a user browsing an application I have worked on, I try to make sure that your experience is enjoyable. Do you want to be on this website? Did you accomplish what you came here to do? Does my server logic make sense for you to improve something, or modify it for your own needs?

Ultimately, it's my goal to be a part of the design process for something that people want to use and enjoy using. If people dislike using or interacting with something I've worked on, I try to figure out what's going on and how it can be improved, no matter where in the design process it is. I take pride in what I do. I don't develop or design things that I don't have faith and confidence in.
