I have been playing piano since I was 6 years old. I have studied with
prominent pianists such as Aria Award-winning Sally Whitwell, Professor
Boaz Sharon (Boston University) and Tanya Gabrielian (Boston University).
I have played in venues such as the Sydney Opera House and Smith Recital Hall at
the University of Illinois, and my repertoire spans works from the early Baroque
era to music written within the last 20 years. I currently study piano at Boston
University under Tanya Gabrielian.

Taekwondo and Martial Arts
I have practiced Taekwondo since I was 16 years old, although lately I have not
involved myself with any dojo. I hold a red belt given to me by the Australian
Martial Arts Academy, with whom I also worked for nearly a year. I am attracted to
Taekwondo because of the impressive kicks, and flexibility and strength required.
Although perhaps not the most practical martial art, and not one which focusses on
the hands, I do feel comfortable that if I was attacked in the street I would be
able to defend myself.

I decided to take a computer science course in the summer of 2019, after my freshman year
at Boston University. It was a Python basics course, one recommended for my physics degree,
and I found I loved it. Since then I have tried to find excuses to code, through mini
projects or other BU opportunities. Most recently, I signed up to be a TA for CS108, a
course in applications programming run by Aaron Stevens. I am enjoying this opportunity to
broaden my horizons and learn new programming languages, the most recent of which is HTML,
in which I am now coding.
