About Me

I enjoy experimenting with new technology and I have been programming various games and projects since the age of 10. In my spare time I work on various Open Source Projects on Github and love experimenting with new programming languages. Iā€™m eager to learn and often watch development videos from various conferences and read programming and design books. I love working with people especially creating software, which brings real benefits to people. I have recently started running and aspire to someday be able to run a marathon.

Simplicity and repose are the qualities that measure the true value of any work of art.
— Frank Lloyd Wright
