About Me


Hey, I'm David, a 24 year old Computer Science Master's Student at the City College of New York. I currently hold a B.E. in Computer Engineering.

Throughout the years as an undergraduate student, I've worked on projects in several different fields - Computer Vision, Cryptography, Robotics, Mathematics and Mobile (Android and iOS). During my Senior year, I was introduced to the power of web development through my research on Graphyte - a scientific collaboration tool consisting of several web services built using Django, Pyramid and MongoDB. My first contribution to this project was Caesium, a real-time notification system built using Node.js, Socket.io and Redis.

Since then, I've been deeply invested in all things web-related. I began creating web applications and services using all the hottest frameworks that I could get my hands on: Flask, Django, Node.js, Express.js, Angular.js, Ember.js, D3.js, and recently React.js.

In my spare time, I enjoy writing, reading and playing the occasional video game but mostly building them. I am a huge advocate of open-source development and a firm believer in John Resig's write code every day. While commit streaks do not equate to the skill of a developer, they help keep my skills sharp while I work on the every day projects that I love.
