About Me
Headshot

I was born and raised in Laguna Beach, CA and am currently located in Los Angeles, CA. I love hanging out at the beach, whether I'm snorkeling, skimboarding, or just lounging! I also enjoy running long distances and wheel-throwing pottery. I am studying computer science at USC, and I am particularly interested in web development. The internet is such a vast place and it's exciting to think that a site I worked on will reach such a broad audience. I like doing front-end design because I feel like usability and presentation of a product are fundamental to the impact it creates. Additionally, I also like doing back-end development because I value having an idea of the whole picture and because it's very interesting to see where the front and back ends of a website meet. Anyways, if you want to reach me, my contact information is listed at the bottom of the page. Thanks for visiting!
