Software Engineer turned Indie Hacker. I love building things and helping people. Very active on Twitter.
At the end of 2022, I quit my job as a software engineer to go fulltime into building and scaling my own SaaS products. In the past, I pursued a double degree in computer science and business, interned at big tech companies in Silicon Valley, and competed in over 21 hackathons for fun. I also had the pleasure of being a part of the first ever in-person cohort of buildspace called buildspace sf1. I've documented most of the things I learned along the way here.
