I’m passionate about art & design, tech, and community. I am a very creative person and express myself through color. Art (and by extension design) has been a huge part of my life growing up. I’ve also developed a bit of an obsession for art museums too, and have visited many art galleries and museums in sunny Los Angeles, my hometown. I study computer science because I really value technology and the potential impact it has to make our lives easier and further any cause. At the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Hack4Impact has given me a way to give back to the community while still doing what I love - solving difficult technical challenges. Hack4Impact creates web applications and programs for non-profits and humanitarian organizations that seek to better the community.
