I gained experience with network automation and programmable networking as well as Docker, Node.js, and mongoDB.

Other Interests

Piano

From classical to pop, I enjoy playing all types of music. I've played piano since I was 5 years old, and have participated in many competitions.

Notable achievements:

  • 1st place All-State (2014-2017)
  • 2nd place National League Showcase Competition at Carnegie Hall (2016)

Tennis

Game, set, and match! Tennis is one of my favorite hobbies, and my go-to activity after finishing a tough day of classes or waking up on a bright and sunny Saturday morning. I started playing tennis at the end of middle school, and have played competitively throughout high school, including doubles on our high school's Varsity team and singles at USTA ranked tournaments.

Photography

As an aspiring photographer, I enjoy all different types of photography, from portrait photography to cityscapes and nature photography. I love how photography can capture people and places in ways that words, or even physical experience itself, cannot, and enjoy people's reactions as they light up after I take their photo.

Graphics Design

Graphics design is another hobby I enjoy. I taught myself graphics design using Bryce 6 and Lightwave, and have created many 3D renderings including 3D object models, landscapes, and animations.
