Bio

I am a student striving to know all there is to software design and development. I am proficient at the adobe creative suite and am making moves to become adept at java, c#, swift, node.js and more. In addition to programming, I do want to delve deeper into interactive media because I believe that it is where inspiration for the future is made.
