About

I'm an aspiring software developer at the University of Toronto completing a specialist degree in Computer Science. I love solving problems and I'm passionate about open source software. I believe in its importance because it helps us learn and build better software through collaboration.

Currently, I'm interested in developing web applications but I'm also dabbling in machine learning - namely neural networks.
