About Me

I think that there is great potential in open source to empower developers and clients to take advantage of very powerful tools to execute their goals in their particular case without needing to reinvent the wheel. The open source community has driven me to explore the latest platforms and APIs to develop the next big project.
In my free time, I like building side projects, reading manga, and trying out new food, especially Japanese food.
