ABOUT ME

I'm a Software Engineer based in Pasadena, CA with a strong zeal for building digital products that boost enterprise value. Collaborated in diverse environments including venture-backed startups and medium-sized enterprises. While proficient in full-stack development and software architecture, my expertise reside in developing exceptional web apps; providing intuitive user interfaces with efficient and modern backends.

My passions are maximizing client satisfaction and improving business performance. While engineering problems are often intrinsically enjoyable to encounter, I'm most attracted in solving software challenges with business justification. I welcome professional opportunities; entailing collaborative team responsibilites, gain software architecture experience and implement project management skills. I'm motivated by product success and business growth, not technology for technology's sake.
