It me

Hey, I’m Jaye! I’m a software engineer based in the Philippines. I like building and experimenting with tech, and sometimes dabble in a bit of design in the process.

In my spare time, you’ll find me taking photographs, playing games, getting back into reading, or listening to a musical non-stop.

Welcome to my small place in the internet! I write posts mostly about web development (JavaScript and Ruby) and keep a record of previous projects and activities here. Read on to know more about me.

my journey

I didn't realize that discovering the world of HTML and CSS through Tumblr themes and Facebook’s Friends for Sale game a few years back would lead me here. I was fascinated with how you can change a whole website’s appearance by just a few lines of code.

I ended up taking BS Computer Science in university and eventually, started to work in product companies. Along the way, I joined hackathons and conferences, created useful side projects, and learned a ton from my colleagues, firends, and Stack Overflow. 11-year-old me would never have seen it coming. It's far from over though.
