About

Hello,

I am Evan, a Full Stack Software Engineer and Certified Cloud Engineer based in Singapore.

I love building cool, fun and meaningful things with tech, whether that be websites, applications or games. To me, coding is the closest thing to magic we have in this world.

I was a Computer Science major at the National University of Singapore from 2017 to 2020. During my time there, I was the Deputy Head of Technology at Google Developer Student Club NUS, and the President of the NUS Skating Club. I was also a Teaching Assistant for Programming Methodology and Networking courses.

Shortly after graduating, I started working as a Full Stack Engineer at Padlet.
