hello! i'm william

i'm a student pursuing a M.S. in Computer Science at UC San Diego. I studied Computer Science as well as Cognitive Science w/ specialization in Design and Interaction in my undergraduate (also at UCSD). my interests currently lie primarily in software development, human-computer interaction, and programming languages.

i've been fortunate enough to have worked with and learned from some incredibly talented designers, developers, and mentors, whether through student organizations, open source, industry, or academia; their guidance has helped shape much of my philosophy in software development, one driven by design principles, whether for user experience and accessibility, code structure, or developer experience.

projects / portfolio / open source

whether it's for learning new tools or technologies, improving workflows, taking notes, or just having fun, i've always got some form of project underway. feel free to check out some of the things i've done below
