About me

iOS Developer at SherpaShare. I was in charge of deploying several native apps: Driver, Pulse, and Compass. As a first hire I wore many hats. I created a mobile friendly online dashboard using Angular and also adopted the role of designer making UI/UX in Sketch.

Previously I worked at At The Pool as a Lead Developer. I did everything technical from managing PostgreSQL database, backend in Python-Flask, frontend, to app development.

In my college years I was heavily involved in a lot research. I researched in motion planning and computer vision during my BS years in UNR with 2 published research papers. I obtained my Masters in Entertainment Technology from CMU and made the world's thinnest screen out of soap bubble. Multiple papers were published with this project and it was featured in a lot press such as Discover and BBC.



iOS Development

I made numerous native apps using Objective-C along with some side projects in Swift. I usually build apps using CocoaPods, AFNetworking, and Mantle, and I love to explore new technologies. Apps I built include games, social networking, and productivity.


I enjoy making dynamic webpages using either Angular or React. Although I don't call myself a designer, I can use designer's tools such as Sketch and Photoshop. I love details and make things pixel perfect.


Using Python as my main language, I built many websites with Flask and Google AppEngine. I have fundamental knowledge in SQL databases and used AWS briefly.

Computer Vision

abnormal crowd behavior detection

This was my project when I was in REU at UCF.

It computes the optical flow of every frame and apply a social force model on each particle that we lay on the image. Then we can compute whether the video is making unusual activity such as opposing flow.

Motion Planning

Network-Guided Multi-Robot Path Planning

I build a simular that shows how multiple robot will move in an imperfect sensor data using network connections.
