About Me

Do people usually talk about themselves in the 1st or 3rd person in this section?

Today, Ash is a student at UC Berkeley who is currently pursuing an education in negotiation (talking his way into parties), interpersonal teamwork (wingmanning), communication (dating), and risk management (procrastination). On most days, Ash can be found working out (of his office in Palo Alto, CA).

Before Berkeley, this dimwit left high school his junior year and co-founded a startup called 1StudentBody in Redwood City, CA. During his time there, the company grew to 13 full-time employees and boasted use at over 33% of all US highschools.

Although mostly unintelligent, Ash has been writing code since a young age, and somehow manages to build things that people end up using. I'm still unsure how he got into Berkeley.
