The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.

Currently a senior in high-school, lover of code, and avid exclamation mark (over?) user! As a philosophy nerd, I tend to research the boundaries of AI. Though a maker at heart, I am a (self) certified generalist—web dev, game dev, systems, & anime.
It all started with an invitation to Next19—my first (not last) conference—which taught me one of my favorite ideas, "don’t let school take away from your education".
Interested in interacting with the "real world", I became an active member of HackClub, organizing many events (including AngelHacks & the Summer of Making). IMO I made some cool projects too.
Blasting off I gathered experiences—some crazy AI internships, took part in the worlds longest (3,502 mile-long) hackathon, and independent research on turning CO2 into fuel! I even created my first startup where we got funding!
If you find any of this interesting, or just want to talk, hit me up with an email with something resembling my name [at] this domain! I’m trying to read more, so recommend me some books/music!
