My love for computers and programming started while in elementary school when a family friend gave me a Visual Basic 4.0 tutorial book. Later in college, I discovered design, design process, architecture, and GIS -- then I started have fun! Web development and its ubiquitous access has become my favorite medium for design. I especially enjoy solving complex problems, automation, and building intuitive user interfaces.
