About Me

I am a motivated software engineer with deep interests in Front-end Development and UX Design and Strategy. I have experience in developing front-end applications and websites using the modern web technologies and popular Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Drupal 8. As a UX Designer and strategist, I conducted user research, interviews and surveys for products, and then used the gathered information to create sitemaps, wireframes and prototypes.

I am a graduate student at University of Southern California majoring in Computer Science and expecting to graduate in December 2017. I work as a Student Web Developer at the Office of Provost, USC and, currently looking for Summer 2017 internship and Co-op opportunities.
