Hi everyone! Delighted to join the community and I hope I can help people out!

A bit about me:

I discovered my passion for teaching and building open-source technology during my Computer Science undergraduate degree at UofT's Mississauga campus. There, I served as a Teaching Assistant and coordinator of a department initiative called the Hacklab which helped students bring their tech ideas to life.

In the industry, I have worked as a software engineer at Google and Vida. I loved working with teams to bring a common vision to the people. I was grateful for the opportunities for growth in design and product research & development that were made available to me there.

When I had the chance to return to the industry or academia, I chose instead to pursue my passion for making open software products with students worldwide and sharing what we learn along the way!

I formalized this passion by founding Grey Software, a not-for-profit startup based in Canada, and my most meaningful enterprise yet!
