about me.


My name is Allan and I was born and raised in the Country Music capital of the world. In 2015, I moved further south to become a Yellow Jacket. At Georgia Tech I am learning to build and crash things for a living — fortunately, code isn’t expensive.

When I am not debugging code, you'll most likely find me at the park juggling with a soccer ball or alternatively, on days that the southern heat is unbearable, you'll find me enjoying of some tunes or learning more about the complexities of the world through either 1) the variety of podcasts that I listen to 2) a documentary or 3) Pawn Stars.

Fun Fact: I used to be obsessed with magic so I have one or two tricks up my sleeves (note: making your bug disappear is not a magic trick).
