hey, i'm rishi.
i love writing code for high impact projects like startups, languages, APIs, infrastructure, bots, and everything in between.
i've been programming for ~7 years now, and i've found a niche building performant GQL APIs, NextJS apps, and conducting research & business at early-stage startups.
i'm not looking for internships at the moment, but i will be open in summer 2021.
