About
Me

I am a first year undergraduate student at the University of Waterloo, for computer engineering. With over seven years of programming experience, I'm a self-taught full stack developer, server administrator and game developer.

I'm currently a Team Canada prospect for Web Design and Development at the upcoming WorldSkills competition in Kazan, Russia. I was a two-time winner at Canada's largest hackathon, Hack the North in 2018 and 2016, and also won at Canada's largest high school hackathon, MasseyHacks III in 2017.
