I am a developer skilled in system architecture with scalability in mind. Scalability maximizes throughput and stack effeciency, giving faster access to resources when needed. I love it!


Junior Software Developer

Rito Technologies

I have the awesome priveledge of making applications to makes the lives of users easier and better. On most days I use PHP to create the backend, and a combination of HTML/CSS + JS/jQuery for the frontend. I also create Python scripts to automate a lot of tasks and/or improve their functionality. As of late, I've been working on an Android application which is super cool.

Apart from being a software developer, I enjoy most of my time in the presense of people. Either at a party, at campus, or anywhere people are gathered in a structured and social manner. Listening and chatting to people helps me to better understand my own views as I communicate them, and understand the views of those around me as I listen to them.

When I'm not with people, I enjoy reading and learning about new things. I also enjoy writing, so I can better structure my knowledge, and share it with others.

I also enjoy writing poetry.
