I am a software engineer in Chicago currently employed at Optiver US. I have a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (class of 2013). I have had a wide range of experience as a software engineer, web developer, and graphic designer. Other companies I have worked for include Orbitz Worldwide and Google.
I started web design in middle school in early 2005 when I began running my own web site with no prior knowledge of code. As my ambitions grew, I taught myself enough to build a full dynamic site on my own by 2008. By 2009 I was already programming a considerable amount when I was accepted into the CS department at U of I. I have never stopped seeking out knowledge to make my ideas a reality both through my classes and on my own.
