Hi! I'm an undergraduate student studying Computer Science at Northeastern University. I've been programming since I was young, so I'm very passionate about computer science, especially compilers and type systems.
I grew up on Maui, Hawaii, I have a twin sister living in Sydney, and an older sister attending school on Oahu. I've studied classical piano for a long time, and my favorite composer is Alexander Scriabin.
As a proponent of functional programming, I enjoy programming in OCaml, and hacking on Racket. I'm glad that more commonly used languages like C++ and Java have adopted many useful functional ideas. The spirit of Lisp lives on!
As much as I love functions, I have a soft-spot for low-level hacking in C and also Forth. I'm grateful to have been mentored by Mitch Bradley, the founder of Open Firmware. He taught me a lot about Forth, but more generally about taste: what it means for a design to be simple, small, and elegant.
