About Me

I am a highly motivated individual who is always enthusiastic about learning new things, who recently obtained a Bachelor of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo and a Bachelor of Business Administration at Wilfrid Laurier University in a dual degree program. I've been playing musical instruments since I was 4 years old, and one of my favourite hobbies is travelling with my camera in hand. Most often though, I love getting lost in code for hours, working out how a given system works or digging into details of code while debugging. I am an endlessly curious individual who loves learning and someone who greatly enjoys helping others - in addition to 2+ years of internships, I have spent much of my time mentoring individuals through organizations such as WiCS and giving back to my community by volunteering through organizations such as UW Blueprint.
