/==============================\ | Staff Mini-Biography: Steven | \==============================/
WHERE DID YOU GROW UP? WHAT WAS YOUR ACADEMIC PATH? I grew up in a small city in east Los Angeles where the beloved corn men roam and the boba shops abound. My academic path was pretty normal: going to the public schools and taking lots of AP classes. I originally came to Berkeley as an English major but found out that Linguistics and CS were my calling, so now those are my two majors :p HOW MUCH PROGRAMMING HAVE YOU DONE (& WHAT LANGUAGES)? I was first exposed to programming at Berkeley after taking 61A on a whim. Since then, I learned to code in Python, Java, C, and HTML/CSS and will always be up for learning new languages. I have designed a few blogs in my grungy-teenager phase but I try to forget that part of me. WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES? I am an avid and serious cartoon watcher, so if you like Steven Universe, Attack on Titan, Bobs Burgers, WBB, or HTTYD, strike up a conversation with me. I do yoga and archery but not at the same time. I like to jam out on my ukulele. I collect CDs of my favorite artists. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR TALENTS AND SKILLS? I am a very experienced tea drinker. I am a writer. I can do needle work. I am really good at finishing food ("leftovers" is not in my vocabulary). HAVE YOU DONE ANYTHING REMARKABLE? HAS ANYTHING MEMORABLE HAPPENED TO YOU? I've written a full length play and am looking to have it produced in the near future. WHAT COMMITMENTS WILL BE CONSUMING YOUR CYCLES THIS SEMESTER? Cal Archery, vinyasa yoga, practicing the ukulele/violin, writing my novel, and of course, teaching for 61C!
