I'm a self-motivated software engineer from Irvine, CA with a background in design. I write empathetic code and build full-stack applications that people connect with directly. Regardless of the platform, solving difficult problems and building smooth user experiences is my jam.

I currently work as a Software Engineer at Blizzard Entertainment in Irvine, California.
