📜 About Me

I am a senior at the University of Florida studying computer science. I am currently working as a Development Lead for the CaSMM team in the Engaging Learning Lab @UF. I am passionate about backend engineering with a focus on scalable services and process automation. However, with my knowledge of JS frontend frameworks, I am proficient with full stack web development. Outside of work and school, I have taken interest in learning new web development tools and frameworks by following Youtube videos and incorporating them into my own projects.

I like to consider myself as a pertinacious problem solver. I cannot take my mind off the problem until I find a good solution. I thrill at the satisfaction I get when solving a problem after hours or days of hard work. When facing a problem, I like to explore all options and seek to build out the most appropriate solution while taking efficiency and competency into consideration. I am highly motivated, goal-oriented, and determined.
