about me

At the age of six I discovered a passion for technology through video games. I was fascinated by the possibilities along with the ability to have almost any answer through a simple search. As I became more comfortable typing, I learned how to use search engines such as Ask.com and Google. Within a few years, I became the go-to techie within my household. Before I was ten years old, I was able to make my first freelance sale: fixing a neighbor’s ransomware riddle computer in exchange for a delicious home-baked apple pie. During my time in middle school student, I began messing around with web development tools, graphics design, 2D and 3D animation, and video editing. As I learned more about a certain software or language, I realized my knowledge transfers over to various other fields and as I kept researching, it became easier. With the permission of my parents, I began freelance work through platforms such as Fiverr in addition to marketing through various online communities and began earning my own money.
During my time in high school, I was very active when it came to extracurricular activities. As a member of various clubs, committees, and organizations I was able to accrue around three hundred CAS hours.
I was born and raised in Queens, New York City. As a high school student, I went to the Baccalaureate School of Global Education located in Astoria, NY. After graduating, I enrolled into Stony Brook University and moved into a dorm in Long Island. I have had a passion for technology since I was around six years old but also love music, cars, cycling, going on adventures, and traveling.

professional highlights

Freelance Work (2018 to Spring 2020)

Through online communities and virtual marketplaces, I offered freelance services in the scripting, graphics design, and web development industries.
Through platforms such as Fiverr and community servers on Discord, I was able to design logos, web pages, sites, configure servers and web panels, along with code scripts for video game community servers.

Retail Experience (Summer of 2019)

Worked at a hardware store where I was a cashier and did inventory management. I was responsible for ensuring that customers had smooth transactions and providing a pleasant customer service experience. I aided customers in locating products as the store was pretty larger and confusing. On top of this, I would restock merchandise and ensured that the area was kept tidy.

Produced By Andrey (Present)

In cooperation with my close friend and group of friends, I helped him set up an online website and digital presence for a brand for his studio and online beat production shop. By working together, we are able to share each other’s strengths while working towards a common goal and amplifying our reach as we are doing so.
