About me

self-portrait

Hello world! My name is Gray Jin and welcome to my website.

I am a software engineer, web developer, and illustrator based in Waterloo, Ontario.

I began my post secondary education in 2009 at McGill University with a degree in neuroscience. There, I was exposed to programming and UX design for the first time while designing and running experiments for my own research. It is during this time that I found out my aptitude for problem solving through programming. I decided to further explore that avenue after graduation in 2013.

I am currently pursuing my Computer Science degree at University of Waterloo while further developing myself as an artist through my illustrations as well as through my design in web, games and other applications.
