Professional Summary

I received my Masters in Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto in March 2015. My research focused on reconfigurable computing, overlay processors and memory systems for FPGAs. During the summer of 2012, I worked at Xtreme Labs (now Pivotal Labs) in Toronto where I obtained iOS and web development experience. I worked at AMD with the Apple graphics driver team for a period of 12 months from 2010-2011. Over the summer of 2010, I interned at Microsoft in the Windows 8 Application and Driver Compatibility team. I have a strong background in software development and I would like to take the next step in building quality code for large scale systems.

Still Me

I have a cheerful nature, always kidding around. I am easy to become friends with.

Everything I do, I do with a passion. I gain satisfaction out of completing something to the fullest. That includes my studies, my work and my hobbies. I am very passionate about my life, my friends and this world and my outlook towards it.

I strive to know and understand the truth. I don't believe in faith or destiny. I believe in what I can sense with my 5 senses and anything that can be proven on paper. Anything else is open to debate and I treat with an open mind.

My Interests

Excelling in school. Gaming. Learning new things. Watching discovery channel and Space. Technology is awesome. Want to know how everything works. Curious about the wonders out there.

Deep intrigue for the cosmos. Outer space and its mysteries. One word to describe my lust: fascinating.

Reading non-fiction books, listening to techno and dance music, going out with friends, watching movies in between studies in the genres of mystery, action and adventure.

I read Popular Science, Cracked, TechCrunch, OMGFacts, Engaget and what not whenever I get the time. I also spend a lot of time on TED, bigthink and YouTube listening to folks like Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Richard Dawkins and Michio Kaku.

Elegence and Simplicity

I like things that are elegant and simple. I try to apply these principals to my academics, life and work. Unfortunately, the career I have chosen sometimes becomes very chaotic (IE7 debugging, parallel programming, romance) and that makes my head hurt. =[


I like to joke around a lot. Unfortunately no one gets my jokes. I have been advised to smile during the telling of my jokes. I am working on that. This is not a joke.
