I graduated with a master’s degree in computer science from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. In 2011, I began my career as a software developer at Referentia Systems in Honolulu, Hawaii. At Referentia, I assisted in the development of the LiveAction product. After working at Referentia for 2.5 years, I was hired as a Java web developer by the University of Hawaii. Between the fall 2014 and spring 2015 semesters, I upgraded Laulima, the learning management system that the university uses for traditional face-to-face, online, and hybrid classes.

I hold three Java certifications, including the Oracle Certified Master, Java SE 6 Developer certification.

I am a successful Android developer. As of January 2015, I have published seven Android apps on Google Play. My most popular free app is Morse Code Transmitter, which is installed on more than 100 devices. Chamorro Dictionary is my most popular paid app and is installed on 98 devices. You can check out my apps here.

I really like Gradle because it makes building applications very easy! I was a reviewer for Gradle in Action.

My hobbies include learning the Japanese language, reading books about Japanese culture, and making YouTube videos.
