ABOUT ME

Programming took over my life at an early age of ten. Since then, I have been writing code and experimenting with various startup ideas. My areas of expertise include full stack web application development (back end and front end) on multiple platforms (Golang, PHP, NodeJS, Ruby on Rails, AngularJS, KnockoutJS) and smartphone application development using Cordova. My research interests include machine learning and its various applications.

Being very enthusiastic about entrepreneurship, I founded my first startup back in sixth grade when I developed a meta-search engine that could smartly organize and filter search results. Since then, I have gone on to develop more applications ranging from a social Learning Management System (LMS) to an anonymous social networking app and many more. In the meantime, I also interned as a software developer at MBSoftware (2011), Microsoft (2015) and Picatic (2016) to gain some hands-on industry experience.

Currently, I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science on Computer Science at The University of British Columbia on a full ride scholarship worth around $200,000. As part of my university's co-op program, I work for IBM as a Software Developer.
