Heads up, this webpage was last updated October 2018, and a lot of the information is out of date now.


It's been well over 7 years since I've been exposed to the fundamentals of coding. Over these years, I've worked multiple co-ops in companies located in Toronto and San Francisco. Having finally settled down and continuing full-time at Shopify Toronto, I will be polishing my skills in Ruby on Rails and ES6. Although I specialize in Front-End Development (FED), some other relevant skills I have include Python, Nginx, AngularJS, SQL, and SEO.

Exploring is one of my passions in life. Whether it is halfway across the world or down the street in my own backyard, I love immersing myself in the culture. Although I am based in Toronto, you will find me bouncing from city-to-city during my free time. My latest adventure will be immediately after graduation, visiting cities including Hong Kong, Taipei, and Tokyo. If you're also a fellow explorer, I'm sure we would be best buddies.


Recently, I've gotten back into gaming. Whether it's board games or video games, I'm always looking to have a good time with fellow gamers. It's a great way to relieve stress and it's always fun to have a little bit of competition. Currently, I'm really into Overwatch and Dragon Ball Fighter Z. If you're also into gaming, maybe we should play?
