Who I am.

I'm currently in my second year of studying Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo. Some of my primary academic interests are geometry, digital logic, numerical analysis, and electromagnetism.

In my free time I like to take photos, cook fancy meals, collect vinyl, and take care of my plants.

During my second internship at Loblaw Digital I returned to the Internal Tools team to continue my work on tooling that aims to reduce toil and increase happiness. I played a key role in the development of an innovative chatOps platform intended to help automate workflows for teams in all corners of the business.

Winter 2018

While on my first Internship at Loblaw Digital I worked as a member of the Internal Tools team. I spent the majority of my term developing a highlighly distributed and massively fault tolerant test result aggregation and visualization service. The application provides an intuitive way to interpret large quantities of data and acts as a central source of truth for test results.

In my free time I am also an active member of the open source community. You can check out some of the projects that I have been involved with here.
