I am a 4th year Computer Science student at University of Waterloo, and currently an active member / resident of the Velocity Startup Incubator program. I love ideas. I feel strongly about innovation. I believe in shaping a better future by finding better ways to do things.
Most recently, I worked for Facebook as a Software Engineer, where I:
- Rebuilt the Profile Info View (work history, basic info, contacts… etc) for all mobile platforms across 819M+ monthly active users.
- Architected the Mutuality Collections Framework for computing & rendering 3rd-party privacy-aware commonality sets in friendships, such as mutual movies watched, photos tagged in, events both attending, etc.
- Shipped a “Big Thumbs Up” button for Facebook Messenger as a Hackathon project =)
Prior to that, I worked on the new BlackBerry 10 as a Software Developer for Research In Motion. In my free time, I contribute to open source projects such as Review Board, a powerful web-based code review tool. I also like working on side-projects that make users’ and developers’ lives easier: such as Sack - a faster way to use ack / grep / ag.
I am active on StackOverflow, where I like to play a game by picking unanswered questions on topics that I have no prior knowledge of, then quickly research, implement, test, and explain a working solution on the spot. Here are some of my favorite problems. Problem-solving is an amazing way to learn (and can be quite addictive!)
