About Me

I'm a senior at UT Austin majoring in Computer Science and persuing a minor equivalent certificate in Business Foundations from McComb's School of Business. In addition to that I'm also persuing another certificate in Information Security, which will allow me to be awarded with the INFOSEC Professional Certificate from the Committee on National Security Systems which is managed by the NSA. I'm looking to build my career in application development on both sides of the stack. I'm interested in working with teams that practice Agile Methodologies and use continuous integration. I would like to gain more experience practicing these cutting edge programming techniques because I believe that the tech world moves constantly, and I'd like to be learning from those that are riding the wave.

  • Let us change our traditional attitude to the construction of programs. Instead of imagining that our main task is to instruct a computer what to to, let us concentrate rather on explaining to human beings what we want a computer to do.

    Donald Knuth
  • The competent programmer is fully aware of the strictly limited size of his own skull; therefore he approaches the programming task in full humility, and among other things he avoids clever tricks like the plague.

    Edsger Dijkstra
  • When to use iterative development? You should use iterative development only on projects that you want to succeed.
