I entered the field of software development because I got curious when they told me, "A few lines of code can make a big difference." Turns out, they were right! In my leisure I like to read non-fictitious novels, watch crime series and play ping-pong.

If I wouldn't have been a software developer, I would surely be an illustrator or caricaturist. I love to learn new things but I am too lazy to get out of my bed. I am a foodie and love to cook. I hate reading but love to watch movies especially thrillers or suspense, it's actually a long list.

The Institutional Research and Analytics Department allowed me to hone my technical skills in Data Engineering and Data Analytics. I value being optimistic, living in the present, and being honest.
