Hi, I'm Michael.

I'm a data-oriented programmer with a passion for digital art. By day, I work at Facebook as a Software Engineer. At night, I do web development, machine learning projects, and 3D digital art.


I am a Harvard University graduate (class of 2018) with a bachelor of arts in computer science with a secondary in statistics. Some relevant courses include:

I also love teaching. During my time in college, I've had the pleasure of tutoring and teaching a variety of stat, CS, and math courses including the introductory CS courses, machine learning, linear algebra, and introductory quantitative statistics courses.

Troy High School in Fullerton, CA was where my interest in Computer Science took off. There, I was enrolled in a four-year-long Computer Science pathway that taught me things ranging from circuit logic with breadboards to introductory data structures and algorithms in Java.


I've been toying around with graphic design and animation for a while now, specializing in 3D art. As a computer scientist, my main experience comes from web development and machine learning. In my free time, I love tinkering with Chromebooks and DIY Linux distributions, and I often brush up on coding via Project Euler, HackerRank, and Codecademy.
