A little about me

I am a twenty-something-year-old software developer living in New York. I'm a problem solving enthusiast, with a penchant for coffee and a whimsical sense of humor. Come say hey at a hackathon or tech meetup near you.

If you aren't tired of me yet, check out my blog.
If you want work with me, take a look at my resume.

What I do


I build webapps with React.js or Angular.js in frontend, and Node.js or Go in the backend. I've worked with MySQL, PostgreSQL & MongoDB in the database layer. I know my way around Android on the mobile side, and I some times dabble in Rust for system-level tools.

Community Organizing

Sharing what you're passionate about with other people is one of the most rewarding experiences any person can enjoy. I of course am no exception. Organizing public events and clubs is how I share my passion for software development and science.

Open source

I open source and the spirit of collaboration through contribution; software should be transparent and collaborative. I have contributed to several open source projects, and I open source most projects that I build independently.

All Things Basketball

I'm a backetball fanatic. Over the past few years, I've progressively gotten enamored with the nuances and dynamics of the game. My foray into the world of hoops has been spurred by incredible sports writers like Zach Lowe.

I've worked on


A remote logging accumulator with a web interface. Chronicle is a way to maintain log messages from any source and look at incoming messages live. Its powered by a REST API, and the livelogging feature is driven by websocket.

Temple ACM Website

The website of Temple Univerity's ACM chapter. I built this with my good friend Sri Ramanujam. It features an event list view that loads directly from Google Calendar and an eyepleasing intro to the organization as a whole.


Ever used the app Yo? Do you enjoy playing Flappy Bird? Well, meet their bastard child FlappYo. Basically, this is an in-browser version of flappy bird that has the bird flap when a "yo" is sent to the server. Its a lot of fun, but its damn near impossible to beat.


Owlhacks is a premier hackathon in Philadelphia organized by students from Temple University. In April, 500 students will come to Philadelphia to learn, collaborate and build over the course of 36 hours.


A simple redirect server that prepends "www" to request URLs without subdomains. Great for Github Pages powered sites.
