About me

When I’m not developing web applications, I spend my free time writing music, playing video games, and planning out my next trip to the beach.

I am one who believes that having an open mind to learning is key in order to succeed in life.   I strive for knowledge in all aspects of life and I yearn to use my skills and talents to create a better world not only for myself but for the people around me.

“The only true wisdom is knowing you know nothing.”

Early Life

I was born in Whittier, California on March 16, 1995.  My parents raised me in Diamond Bar, California and blessed me with three beautiful, younger siblings: Brandon, Nastassia, and Monique.  Being the oldest, I strive for the greatest and do everything in my power to set a good example for my younger siblings.

Growing up I was always staying active. I loved to skateboard, swim in the ocean, jam on my guitar with my brother, play video games, and solve lots of puzzles. Once it came time for me to decide what I wanted to do in college, I knew I wanted to do something tech related.

Education

In 2013, I started college at Cal Poly Pomona pursuing a degree in Computer Engineering. Throughout my curriculum, I gained hands-on experience with both electrical engineering and computer science. I grew a natural love for programming because of my passion for solving puzzles. I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona on June 10th, 2018 with my B.S. in Computer Engineering.

Excited to graduate 2018

When it came time for me to start looking for jobs it was an obvious choice for me to pursue a career in software engineering. I landed my first job in January 2019 doing full-stack web development with Talent Path and have been loving it since I started.

Hobbies

Having a balanced life is something that I believe is important in order to live a healthy and fulfilling life. I still strive to stay as active as I can when I’m not working.

I love surfing, photography, and most of all, music.  Music is an important part of my life.  In my free time you can catch me playing guitar, ukulele, piano, drums, and a variety of other instruments.  I also enjoy dancing and learning about the Polynesian culture.  I’m lucky enough to get to perform and share my talents on the stage with the Ohana Polynesian Dancers.
