I’m Steve, a software engineer and student from the Boston area.

Ever since I was a young child, I've had a passion for technology and computers. My journey began at the age of 8 when my dad gifted me a hand-me-down desktop computer. That seemingly innocuous gift sparked my curiosity and inspired me to root my Kindle Fire and install the Android operating system, allowing me to download a much larger library of than the Fire normally allowed. It was then that I realized the limitless possibilities that programming and computer science held, and I knew I wanted to explore them further.

Fast forward to today, and I'm a proud Junior at Northwestern University, where I'm pursuing a degree in Computer Science. My primary focus is on backend infrastructure and low-level systems research, as I find it fascinating how complex systems can be engineered to work seamlessly together.

I also serve as a Technical Lead for the Northwestern University Financial Technologies Club (NUFT), where I have the opportunity to apply my skills in cutting-edge technologies and collaborate with fellow students who share my enthusiasm for innovation. Currently, I am leading the CASCADE project, an ambitious endeavor that aims to create clusters of computers, along with the software to run on them, using Kubernetes and Rust in order to publish, consume, and process millions of messages per second.

My professional experience has given me the chance to work on innovative projects in diverse settings. I've had the privilege of interning at Southie Autonomy, RasLabs, and Amazon as a Software Engineer Intern. This summer, I'm incredibly excited to join IMC Trading as a Software Development Intern, where I'll be working on cutting-edge backend projects.
