About Me

Hey there! My name is Calvin and I just recently graduated from UC Berkeley majoring in Electrical Engineering Computer Science. I'm proud to say I've lived in the Bay Area since birth.

I am experienced in Ruby, Rails, JavaScript, React, Redux, Python, and Java among other languages and frameworks. Check out some of my projects below.

While at UC Berkeley, some of my favorite courses included Software Engineering, Algorithms, and Data Structures. Outside of school, I have interned at an e-commerce startup, named Bright Cellars Inc., as a web developer and as a software engineer. I was proud to make important contributions towards a quickly growing company that excites me.
