Personal Statement

The thrill of intellectual discovery satiates my desire to know, and it is a never-ending process, for new knowledge leads only to more questions.

I am a software developer who works mainly with web technologies. I am interested in teaching, programming, software/web design, or devops. Almost all of my computer-related skills are self-taught. Go further down to see what I have to offer. Do feel free to contact me either for enquiries, or if you would like to further discuss about what I can do for you.
