A software developer working primarily on iOS applications.

About Me

Hi, I’m Arthur! I am pursuing a bachelors of science degree in computer science at University at Buffalo. I combine my skills in design and programming to create products that people enjoy. My interests lie in computer science, UI/UX design, and entrepreneurship.

Skills: I'm mostly self-taught in iOS apart from attending MakeSchool’s Summer Academy, where they taught how to create iOS games. Since then, I have created a bunch of fun projects and have worked at a few companies which are displayed down below.

Belief: I strongly believe that anyone can do anything if they put in the time and effort.
“Without faith, nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.” - Mary Bethune.

Future Plans: I’m very excited about the future of augmented and virtual reality. But I don't think now is the prime time to develop on those platforms. I am also excited in React Native, and I plan to start developing React Native applications sometime in year 2017.

Thanks for visiting my website. If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me via email.
