I'm helping to build a thriving future.

At 13 years old, I developed an artificial intelligence algorithm that could framework new applications autonomously, which won me a $10,500 prize. That was the moment I realized that I had much more to offer beyond APs, college courses and science fairs. See the Research Paper & Project Feature↗


After that, I began to work in the space of entrepreneurship. I co-founded a startup called Fidutam, which was named in the top 10% of Y-Combinator applicants, and is scheduled to pitch at an international competition in April after winning 1st in the independent business plan category.

When I was 14 (almost 15), I've worked biotechnology projects spanning a wide variety of topics, and been a national-qualifying debater. My focus was on building up biotechnology, synthetic biology, and biomedical engineering projects; which led me to engage with lab experts at Stanford, Tufts, and Doudna Lab.

I'm writing this on my birthday - April 25th, now 15 years old. I've started to really get into philosophy, reading, and the liberal arts, and its intersection with AI and the human sciences. I'm also working at TKS, an olympic level training program to teach young students to become the next generation of CEOs. Read my Review After Going Through the Program↗


Most importantly, I'm enjoying life with my family, still engaging in extra-curriculurs, and striving to achieve my goals alongside some amazing individuals. I've seen my life take a 360° turn; I've gone from worrying about my calc test to meeting the CEO of Google. Visit my Recollection of 2020↗


As I continue to develop, I'd love for you to keep up with my journey, which was ultimately my goal in making this website. See an example with my Integrated Article Page & FAQ↗. After 30+ hours of coding, I've made a space to house both my professional and personal highlights, for me to look back on, and for you to forward to.
