What I do
I'd argue one of the greatest ways to change the world is through technology. Software is a rapidly growing field, one that is definitely a game changer. I've worked on several projects that involve coding. I'm keen on trying out new challenges and love that the bounds for programming is limitless.
One interest of mine working with electronics. Specifically, my studies in computer engineering has sparked an interest in Arduino. Arduino combines aspects of software and hardware and knows no bounds in what can be created. My experience in a student team, working with Arduino and Raspberry Pi, has further evoked my interest.
One of my passions is to teach and educate my students. I have always thought the impact a teacher can have on his students is extraordinary. This is one of the ways I strive to make the world a better place. My experiences as a teacher vary, whether it be privately tutoring math, volunteering as a grade school band instructor, or working full time as an independant java and robotics teacher.

My Work Experience
Canada Youth Robotics ClubJava, Robotics, and Arduino Instructor May 2017 - August 2017 Summer Internship
At the Canada Youth Robotics Club, we are a non-profit organization that strives to educate youth about robotics and related topics. This internship at the Canada Youth Robotics Club serves as the first of my UBC co-op work terms. As a Java instructor, I have taught students of grade 7 to 11 about coding. Through teaching syntax, general concepts, and algorithms, the CYRC prepares students for Waterloo's annual Canadian Computing Competition. I've taught robotics to students as young as 5 years old. Through the use of K3 Abilix and graphical programming, my students have been able to construct and program simple motor controlled robots. Lastly, I work as an Arduino instructor as well. I teach students fundamental concepts about circuits in addition to graphical programming through mBlock, or line-by-line coding using the Arduino IDE. I am also responsible for creating the CYRC's lesson plans publication, intended to be used in the following fall school semester.

Peace Arch EducationJava Instructor August 2016 - January 2017
Through the use of the Greenfoot, I've taught a variety of students object oriented programming in Java. Greenfoot is an IDE that is a mix between visual and line-by-line coding. It is also an excellent tool for introducing students to object oriented programming concepts. Greenfoot's pre-made graphical interface allows programmers to easily create visuals that interact with each other. My classes have involved both beginner and intermediate students. We start with the fundamental concepts of programming in our beginner course and work towards creating simple games in Java. Intermediate students are challenged with more intricate concepts, such as arrays, stacks, and recursion. Lastly, I have guided gifted students towards creating their own games.

TuGoOffice Intern July 2016 - August 2016 Summer Internship
Worked in IT for TuGo, a travel insurance company. Actively participated in an Agile development environment with daily stand-up meetings which promoted workplace communication. Implemented a ZoHo webform for potential business partners to fill out which automatically creates a lead via email and queues it in a second system, improving response times. Also assisted in coding a program that automatically converted ™ symbols on the company website to ® using Regex, saving hours of manual work.
