I'm a programmer, designer, entrepreneur and bioinformatician. I'm also a blogger, esports enthuiast, Sri Lankan, and a bunch of other things. I enjoy writing software, designing products, and exploring new ideas and knowledge.

My background is in Bioinformatics and creating software products. I studied a combination of computer science, data science and genetics leading to a Honors Specialization in Bioinformatics from Western University in 2019. That same year, I founded Clew: a startup funded by Y Combinator (S20) and Garage Capital to build meaningfully better tools for collaborative work.

I use this website to share my ideas, notes and research on things I'm working on – mostly in the realms of technology, product and software design, and education.


Interviews

The thing about interviews, especially for young people, is that they capture a slice of you as a person, in a specific manner and moment. But, I'm continually growing, doing different things and evolving my ideas. Interviews are an excellent way to look back, almost like some mile markers leading up to who I am today.
