aspiring full-stack web developer


About me

Hey! 🤠 I am currently a junior at Rutgers University - New Brunswick, passionate in computer science and engineering. I plan to earn a Bachelors in Computer Science with a Data Science minor by Spring 2025.

I'm currently working part-time at Code Ninjas Bridgewater as an assistant center director, overseeing 12-15 employees and interns, and running a FIRST Robotics FLL team. I also work as a labs consultant with the Rutgers University Office of Information Technology, providing online and in-person support for Rutgers faculty and students.

My passion for this field sparked during my middle school years with web development, and to this day I continue to use websites as a creative outlet. Many of my personal projects revolve around the idea of full-stack web development and user interface/experience. For front-end HTML/CSS development, I prefer to use frameworks such as Bootstrap. As for dynamic back end, I prefer JavaScript (Node.JS) and Express.JS. I am also familiar in developing with Google's Android Open-Source Project. I write mobile applications using Java and XML via the Android SDK and am familiar with unlocking, rooting, and installing third-party kernel software for Android devices through the Magisk framework.

Some other interests of mine include Discord bot development using DiscordJS, designing and programming mechanical keyboards using Fusion360 and QMK, standalone application development in Java, cloud architecture and computing using virtual servers, digital graphic design using Adobe Photoshop, and working with ARM Micro-processing on DIY projects, i.e. the Raspberry Pi.
