Stephen graduated from MIT in 2011 with a degree in Mathematics with Computer Science, as well as minors in Physics and Theater Arts. Before that, he attended the highly competitive Lynbrook High School in California, where he participated heavily in both math and robotics competitions, and received numerous awards for his success. Since then, he has been working in the software industry, though he continues to work with competitive math teams, mentor high school robotics teams, and generally support budding students in their endeavors.
Even off the clock, Stephen is deeply passionate about math and science. He always enjoys learning something new, and even more so sharing it with others, which he has been doing since the beginning of high school. His favorite form of procrastination: helping someone else with their own work. When there is no one else around with a problem to solve, he spends his free time solving curious math and physics problems of his own, programming, cooking, acting, and working on his upcoming science fiction novel.
