I am CEO of Ch1pa Software, a mobile application development firm founded in 2011. I have done all of this while attending Hickory High School in Hermitage, Pennsylvania.

An idea worth spreading

You can achieve your aspirations as long as you put your full effort and diehard spirit into them. Don't let yourself fall into the idea that you are too young, too old, too imperfect to fulfill your goals and dreams. Start you dreams right now.

I'm passionate about

Having my name and products in the hands of others across the world; having those products spread happiness and joy.

Talk to me about

I love modern technology, renaissance art, and classical music. My favorite artist is Van Gogh, while my favorite musical artist/composer is Mozart.

People don't know I'm good at

Making others feel invincible during a time of despair.

My TED story

I was in a reoccurring, on and off depression for over a year. Watching TED talks really made me feel better about myself, what I do, what I stand for, and what I hope to accomplish. I had been living my life in shadows, hiding my negative emotions, and only bringing them out in one big outburst. TED talks help me realize that we try to hide our emotions and they give me a dose of smiles. These talks and videos make me want to perk up the world in some way. They make me want to use my abilities and products for the greater good of the world, and find a way to make a difference; an impression.
