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'm an open-source software enthusiast, and I'm often working on personal projects or contributing to projects on GitHub. Check out my GitHub or my CV to see what I've been working on recently.

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.
