About

I'm a software engineer in the making, and will soon be graduating with a degree in computer science. My interests include web development, data science, and natural language processing. My hope is that one day a computer will no longer return links when provided a query but instead offer complete answers. Maybe I'll get a chance to work on something like that.

Beginnings

I first found out about programming in my first year of high school. I had no idea what programming was or how it worked but I was quite surprised to see myself getting it quite easily. For a lot of my classmates it was just another "math-y" subject that they somewhat disliked. Our teacher at the time was also a web developer and spent some time showing us how to write js/html/css for the front end as well as some C# for the backend. Web development has stayed with me ever since. I could never really get into desktop development nor even mobile dev (i do find the latter more attractive than the former).

Languages

While C# is still one of my favorite languages, I have kinda moved on from Windows and Microsoft tech in general (except vs code, a great text editor). Nowadays, I'm mostly playing with Python and JavaScript though I do enjoy trying out new languages as often as I can (most recent playthroughs include Java, Scala, F#, and Go).

Financial markets

I've also followed financial markets for quite a long time and know a few things about trading currencies but I haven't done that in quite a while now (was never really that successful trading, and say what you will about the efficient market hypothesis, but beating the market as a speculator is damn hard). I do have quite a bit of freelancing experience writing code for individual traders.

Contact

You can get in touch with me by email at my first name at this domain. I also have a twitter account which I don't really use as well as a github.
