My Website

The languages I used to create this website are HTML, (S)CSS, Javascript, and JQuery.

Virtual Percussion

I used Java to create an application that makes a computer keyboard work like the keys of mallet percussion instruments.

Personal CS Projects

NachenBlaster

I used C++ to code this shooter game which demonstrates my knowledge of polymorphism, inheritance, and abstraction.

OpenMP Lab

I used the language C and the OpenMP API to maximize the efficiency of a program that superimposes X-Ray photo pixels to create a single final image.

Decrypter

This collection of C++ algorithms can decrypt an encoded message, demonstrating my experience with recursion and hash tables.

UCLA CS Projects

Young Leaders Award

Awarded the "University of Rochester: George Eastman Young Leaders Award" for my leadership.

High School Achievements

Music

Stubernic

I learned Stubernic in tenth grade and later brought it to the state level competition, receiving the highest ratings.

Pirates of the Caribbean

In my senior year, I spent three hours per day for over two months transcribing this piano piece to marimba and was able to play it by memory using two mallets in each hand.

PASIC

I won first place in the high school division of the world's largest percussion convention.

The Journey

2015
Until junior year of high school, I was always the skinniest kid in my classes even though I had been exercising for years. My frustration with my lack of improvement transformed into a relentless work ethic and, eventually, results.

Weight-Lifting

I weight-lift five times a week at my local gym. When my friends began asking me about my workout plan in high school, I decided to create a guide to weight-lifting with my tips and exercises which can be found by clicking the image to the left.
Nutrition is a key part of maintaining a lean physique. I eat a lot of broccoli and chicken breasts every day for a high-protein, low-sugar/carb meal plan.

Tennis

I played tennis my whole childhood and was on my middle school's team for all three years.

Service

Interact Club

I founded the Interact Club in tenth grade. By the end of my two years, we had raised $40,000 for childhood cancer research, shipped over 280 bicycles to South Africa, and volunteered in local service events. I oversaw the organization of these projects, ran club meetings, and was the liaison to our Rotary Club sponsor and all other organizations.

My greatest accomplishment with this club is that I left a sustainable impact on my community. The year after I graduated, the Interact Club raised over $35,000.

Boca Raton Regional Hospital

My innate passion for service led me to become a volunteer at the BRRH gift shop. I worked for four hours every Sunday for two years. This experience taught me how to use a cash register and work collaboratively with my co-workers. Every interaction with each customer was a learning experience for me as I developed my sales abilities and tried to leave a smile on the visitors' faces.
I was awarded a scholarship by this hospital for my service and academic standing.

Sujal

Sujal was a four-person, non-profit organization with the goal of providing clean and safe water to underprivileged villages in India. We collected funds by hosting booths at cultural events and encouraging people to donate. With the $20,000 we raised, we installed reverse osmosis filters and gave LifeStraws to underprivileged schools and families.

My moral and altruistic foundations stem from my early involvements with my Indian background, like being a part of Sujal and attending Sunday School.
