My years at the University of Chicago were primarily focused around studying Political Science while pursuing my own interests in investing. After graduating, a close mentor suggested I try working in a sales role as I began to find finance less and less enjoyable.
Despite my quick success in sales, I always found myself most interested in what the engineers were building for us to sell. I decided to take the dive and began learning web development full-time. I am currently attending the Accelerate Coding Bootcamp in Hong Kong as a result. I have a passion for making web applications with strong functionality, UX, and aesthetics. I am currently looking for a junior developer role in order to continue growing my knowledge and expertise.
