My first experience genuinely learning about computers was in high school when I decided to build my own. That experience made me love learning about computers and understanding how they work. While I really enjoyed learning about the hardware aspect of computers, it wasn’t until my freshman year of college that I got my first taste of programming.

My programming journey started in the second semester of my first year in college. I was unsure at the time about my major. After talking to a friend, I took an introductory computer science class and really enjoyed it. I fell in love with the idea of building almost anything I wanted from nothing. The accomplishment of simplifying big problems into smaller ones and solving them was like nothing else. During my first internship, I also realized the positive impact computer science can have on people.

After completing my degree, I joined Atomic Object's Accelerator program to gain new skills and experiences as a software developer. I’m thrilled to not only grow as a programmer but also as a person at Atomic Object.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, playing video games, trying out new things, and listening to music.
