What do I do?

I'm currently in my fourth year at UCLA, pursuing a degree in Computer Science and (Electrical) Engineering. During this upcoming quarter I'm directing a campaign called 1000 Pitches, and helping the UCLA Engineering Department run a student outreach and advertising campaign, for the 50th Anniversary of the Internet. Besides participating in these events, I'm working on an iOS and Android application (developed in React Native) for event aggregation and social planning.


  • Python (Pandas, NumPy, Sklearn, Psycopg2, Boto3, Flask)
  • Javascript (React Native)
  • SQL (Postgres, MySQL)
  • AWS (S3, EC2, RDS, ECS, Batch)
  • C++
  • CAD (SolidWorks, Autodesk Fusion)
