About Me

I’m a software engineer, aspiring entrepreneur, and high school sophomore.

I’ve been working with startups for a year and with code since I was 10. I’m also a boy scout and I love being outdoors.

I’m fascinated by the problems that people face. How can we reduce the wealth gap? Why are there still people living on $2 a day? How can public education actually be effective? How can we stop climate change without needing great sacrifices from the population? How can I do more work in less time? A lot of problems can, in some way, be solved by technology. When I was little, I imagined doing something BIG as an adult - maybe I could build a city in the sky. Now, I can do something BIG with technology.

Current Position

About the Portfolio

This is inspired by the work of Otto Baumberger, who made some cool posters a long time ago. I especially incorporated his 2d and geometric work. All the colors here were found somewhere on his work.
