Android
My main specialty is mobile applications for Android in Java and Kotlin.
Web
Like this website. I prefer classic HTML, CSS, and JavaScript with frameworks like jQuery.
Backend
Node.js and Express, and .NET Core. I love MongoDB as well.

Introduction

My main focuses include mobile application development for the Android platform, along with frontend and backend web development using Node.js and other related tools/frameworks.

I currently work as an Android Engineer at Square in San Francisco, working on custom in-house hardware such as Square Register and Square Terminal.

My non-professional interests include motorcycling & cars, snowboarding, and music & drums. I currently ride a 2018 Triumph Thruxton R and drive a Mk6 Volkswagen GTI.

Motorbikes & Cars

Motorbikes
Triumph Thruxton R I ride a 2018 Triumph Thruxton R. And I absolutely love it. I previously had a 2017 Harley Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight and a Honda Rebel 300. I'm no doubt a motorcycle enthusiast.
Cars
Volkswagen GTI I drive a Mk6 Volkswagen GTI. I've taken it out to Autocross, although in a place like California cars aren't all that useful most of the time. 😉
