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.
