Hi, I'm Miguel.

I'm currently taking a year off from pursuing a Combined Major in Business and Computer Science at the University of British Columbia. I enjoy playing video games and going on long walks along the seawall. I spend a lot of my spare time learning about the capital markets and improving my technical skillset. I like watching Aswath Damodaran videos and reading Michael Mauboussin essays. I also tinker with Java, VBA, and mouseless Excel. I hope to combine my interests in technology by pursuing a career in the FinTech industry.
