Story
Tagline
A developer (software), a spectator (not in a creepy way), and an observer (everything else).
Introduction
I love randomness and nonsensical  things. Some randomness about me: I love Udacity, currently taking a couple of classes on there. 

I try to see and understand people's point of view. Some people said I'm too agreeable. But I said, "I disagree. I'm just trying to be empathic."

I write code, Java and Javascript!
Bragging rights
Talked to James Gosling (the father of the Java programming language; not Ryan Gosling, the entertainer) in a yogurt store... twice!
