Hi, I'm Justin!

Haleakala Summit

I study EECS at UC Berkeley, and some of my pet passions include architecture, economics, and classic rock/blues.

I'm a member of Blueprint, a campus organization that works with nonprofits to build thoughtful web and mobile apps for social good.

This past summer I worked as a software engineering intern at Foursquare. There, I built a detailed data pipeline monitoring service and dashboard for all of engineering's data processing jobs across Databricks, AWS, and proprietary frameworks, giving product and sales teams reliable SLAs for banner clients.

In the past, I've also worked as a software engineering intern at Stripe, where I converted Stripe's $4B+ global Instant Payouts infrastructure volume to a new partner, saving over $1M+ annually and achieving nearly 100% uptime and stability for clients like Lyft, Instacart, Postmates, and Doordash.

Before that, I worked as an undergraduate researcher and systems administrator for Berkeley's Automation Lab, where I worked on an open-source platform to create responsive and engaging surveys for legislators and policy makers. In addition, I was a TA for Berkeley's Data Structures and Algorithms course.

Below are some of the personal blog posts that I have enjoyed writing:

And if you are at all interested, you can check out some songs I currently have stuck in my head.
