About me

I hunger for tech related fields and wish to hone my skills.

I'm a student at the University of California, Santa Cruz majoring in Computer Engineering. I concentrate on Computer Systems, Machine Learning, and Robotics for taking interest in the latest tech fields. Outside my classroom, I do research with Deep Learning parsing datasets from health cares to make predictive models and Computer Vision for Drones. For the past year I've tutored Data Structure at my University to hone my skills further in C and Java programming.


On my spare time, I go downtown near my University to play random people in chess. I have a compulsive personality who takes his creation and or idea one step at a time. I outline my projects to open source them, giving people the opportunity to build off my work/studies.


Being the first in my family to go to college is a privilege especially when few hispanics pursue Computer Engineering and Science. Studying Robotics and how it's influenced in Machine Learning (i.e Machine Vision), has become a passionate attribute of mine.


Managing both your free time and pursuing your goals has always been difficult for me. Make sure you have spare time to go outside and rekindle with the fresh air.

My Professional skills

Language: C/C++

I've coded in C/C++ for 3-4 years now and made it applicable to data structures, sorting algorithms, microcontrollers, robotics, and kernel level stack for the Operating System FreeBSD (i.e Shell, Scheduling, Paging, and File Systems)

Computer Vision & Machine Learning

I've been coding in OpenCV for a year and learned how to make apps related to Object Detection, Facial Recgonition, and Speed tracking. Language is in C++. In my current graduate seminar, I'm transitioning to convolutional neural net studies in computer vision.

Swift & Objective-C

I've coded in Swift and Objective-C for the past year. In Objective-C, I've created apps utilizing the accellerometer and the gyroscope. In swift, I've made an app that parses 700+ Pokemons info (Pokedex).
