I have been writing code since I was 14, starting out learning to write mods for games. Since I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, programming has always been commonplace, and it didn't take long for me to decide to pursue a career in software development.

Although I could have taken a more formal route and pursued Computer Science, I have always been intellectually driven by the curiosities of Mathematics and Physics, so I decided to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Computational Physics from University of California, San Diego. This gave me the opportunity to acquire a deeper understanding of how to apply algorithms and computation to complex real world problems.
