About Me

I've been programming and tinkering with computer systems since the age of 11 and soon to be a UConn grad living/working in NYC. I have a passion for large scale systems and enjoy backend development work and enjoy creating hobby projects.

I became a sole proprietorship under the name of Treehouse Technologies in the year 2012 as a freshman in highschool, playing around with various aspects of tech such as video game development, server hosting, system building, and ultimately freelance software development. That passion for computers eventually led me to major a Computer Science Field.

Outside of tech, I enjoy creating music and videos, eating junk food, and petting dogs.

Past Projects / Ventures

Treehouse Technologies

2010 - 2018

A sole proprietorship created to encapsulate various software products, system building services, and consulting.

Treehouse Technologies was originally founded by myself and two friends with a wildly ambitious vision of building video games to compete with AAA game titles. After the other two founding members left, I registered Treehouse Technologies as a sole proprietorship in my freshman year of high-school. From that point, the Treehouse Technologies brand became one of experimentation--constantly exploring new technology and possible new business products.

I credit most of the problem solving and programming skills that I use today both personally and professionally to be from the level of creative experimentation that Treehouse Technologies enabled.
