Please tell us a little more about your background.
Currently, I am pursuing a BS degree in Computer Engineering at the University of Central Florida and am set to graduate in Fall 2023. During my time in school, I have learned programming languages such as Java, C++. and Python, and have experience with different tools and IDEs such as Visual Studio Code and IntelliJ.

I’m most looking forward to gaining valuable experience in the field. I believe that working with a team of talented professionals will allow me to learn new skills and techniques that I can use to grow both personally and professionally.
Tell us about your hobbies and interests, and what you like to do for fun outside of work.
I enjoy working out, running, hiking, and building Gundam model kits. These activities keep me active and allow me to explore new places and stay mentally and physically healthy.
What is a fun fact about yourself?
I love going on road trips. I find it exciting to explore new places I haven’t been, and I enjoy the freedom of just going wherever I please.
