Hi, I'm Daniel!

I am a first year student at the University of California, San Diego. I am pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, and a minor in Economics. I have interned as a Software Engineer at a startup named Pyze during summer 2016, and will be an instructor for iD Tech at Stanford University during summer 2018.

I am passionate for applying my skills to create practical solutions in the real world. I believe that every moment in our lives is an opportunity for us to consciously better ourselves and others, in the best way we see fit.

Work Experience

Software Engineering Intern

Pyze is a small startup that uses AI technologies to help automate growth for businesses at any stage in their development. I was part of the automated growth team, where I developed a Python script that automatically gathers potential client/company emails and sends an introductory email about the services Pyze has to offer. I also had a leading role in the marketing team, where I led some marketing operations such as improving the Twitter profile, connecting with clients over email, and created/updated blog posts with new and relevant product information.

Working at Pyze gave me insights into the many interesting operations that startups consist of on a daily basis. It furthered my understanding of the tech industry, and stimulated my interest and passion in entrepreneurship.

Course Instructor

I will be teaching multiple classes with topics varying from Coding Apps in Java and C++ to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning courses.

It seemed like a natural transition for me to continue teaching computer science to students, after having founded my own organization, Teaching Kids Code, in high school. I led multiple classes/workshops at an elementary school in my community, teaching 4-6th graders the basics of programming in Python.
