About Me

I currently live in Vancouver and focus on problems at the intersection of business and computer science. I hold a bachelor in commerce (entrepreneurship stream) and a bachelor in computer science (machine learning stream) at the University of British-Columbia.

My last start-up leveraged data federation and federated learning principles to automate an area of the procurement process at large organisations. The project was sold as a vendor management software(SAAS). I learned immensely about product engineering and software sales strategy.
