Hi! My name’s Mayank, (you can call me MJ for short!) and I’m a Software Engineer.
I graduated from the University at Buffalo, State University of New York in 2021, with a degree in Computer Science.

Here are a few things I'm interested in:

music that makes me tap my feet 🎶
and some really good bubble tea 🧋
