About Me:

Ever since I was little, I've loved taking things apart to see how they work. I was always fixing broken things and learning how they functioned. For that reason, I always thought that I was going to be a mechanical engineer, but alas, I enjoy those dang computer thingies too much.

Now I'm a third year Software Engineering Student at Cal Poly and I enjoy spending my time building web apps and writing code in general. My favorite class that I've taken at Cal Poly so far is the dreaded CPE 357, which has a reputation as being the hardest computer science class at Cal Poly. While it was quite difficult, I learned more than I thought possible in 10 weeks and became a much better programmer in the process.

When I'm not in class, studying, or coding, I like to go to the gym and play sports like tennis, basketball, and ping pong. I also love playing and listening music. For playing, my instrument of choice is the drumset, and I've been playing since the 4th grade. For listening, I bought a pair of broken Klipsch La Scala loudspeakers and restored them with my roommate. I also fixed a broken 15" subwoofer, and together they make plenty of noise.
