Favorite Quote...

"I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened. // So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." - Frodo Baggins//Gandalf - LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring

/ About Me

I am a front end engineer who loves sports, the outdoors, and Star Wars just as much as coding.

Hopewell, NJ

Grew up in Central Jersey halfway in between Philadelphia and New York City. Hopewell is a beautiful town and a great place to grow up. Even though I live in San Francisco now I still call it home.

Sports

I love playing basketball, football, dodgeball, and taking part in extreme sports such as skiing, snowboarding, bungee jumping, skydiving, and obstacle course runs. I'm also a huge fan of the Philadelphia Eagles and Phillies.

Travel

I've been to many areas in the U.S. and have visited countries such as Australia, Mexico, New Zealand, Germany, Spain, and want to explore more.

Community Service

I am an avid supporter of community service and have volunteered at the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, Habitat for Humanity, and the Boys and Girls Club of San Francisco. I also donote blood quite frequently.
