About Me

I am a computer engineering graduate student in Arizona State University. I am a code, design and zen lover. I write blogs about technique, art, culture, life and everything. I like music, especially folk and rock. I am learning guitar, cajun and sax.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
