About Me

I am an iOS developer living in the greater New York City area. I started programming for iOS in February 2015. For the past five years, I have focused on using Swift and Xcode to build mobile apps and games. I have also worked with Java, C++, and Python to build desktop applications.

Cornell AppDev

At Cornell University, I joined an Engineering Project Team called Cornell AppDev. Our goal is to develop mobile apps for the Cornell and Ithaca community. Currently we have 5 apps on the App Store. I started by working on Eatery, our most popular app with over 3,000 daily users, which tracks what's being served at dining halls on campus. I also helped develop a new app called CourseGrab which helps students enroll in classes that are full. All of our code is open-source and can be found on my GitHub.

Skills in iOS development and design empower me to deliver high quality apps.

  • Proficient in writing Swift and building apps with Xcode.
  • Well-versed with many Apple frameworks including CoreData, CloudKit, StoreKit, AVFoundation, as well as third-party libraries.
  • Experience working with Firebase, Alamofire, GraphQL, and communicating with REST APIs.
  • Comfortable building UI using both Storyboards and programmatically with SnapKit.
  • Worked with Sketch, Zeplin, Figma, and GIMP to handoff and implement designs.
  • Used Git and GitHub for version control and to share my code through open source.

Piano is a great way I can explore and enjoy music. I like to play a wide variety of classic rock songs which include those by Elton John, the Beatles, Styx, Queen, and Chicago.

Rubik's Cube Speedsolving is a hobby of mine that started way back in 2013. My personal best for the 3x3 is 15.37 seconds, and I can also solve other types of puzzles like the 2x2 through 6x6, pyraminx, megaminx, and various shape-shifting cuboids.

Mobile Trivia Games are something I really enjoy playing. I am a huge fan of HQ Trivia and have developed a number of bots to help answer the questions and generate extra lives. I've won over $6,000 playing the game, as well as games like it.

PC Building has been a passion of mine for a number of years. In total, I have designed and built two PCs from scratch, one of them being for myself and the other for a friend of mine.

I have a number of interests that define me as a person.

  • Recently I began investing on Robinhood. I really enjoy learning about how to buy/sell stocks and options and have steadily been growing my portfolio.
  • One of my goals is to eat better and to practice better fitness. I really want to dedicate myself to improving health both physically and mentally through meditation.
  • I really enjoy playing video games. Some of my favorite games include The Witcher 3, Dead by Daylight, and GTA V. I also occasionally play CS:GO, VRChat, and Minecraft.
  • I also love to listen to all types of music. In particular, I really enjoy 70s/80s classic rock and pop. Some of my favorite artists include Elton John, Queen, and Billy Joel, many of whom I play on piano.


I have developed 14 apps, 10 of which are published on the App Store. My most notable projects are listed below with additional information about their development and release.

This game is very addicting. It’s the perfect level of difficulty. The game itself is also very aesthetically pleasing. There’s many themes to look at, but even the most basic one is made with beautiful colors and fonts.
