An avid competitor in programming contests, machine learning enthusiast, and a full-stack developer, Tim has been in love with math and coding since high school. Tim's first foray into open source was in his senior year at high school, where he was a heavy contributor to the web UI for the Sage mathematical software package. Thereafter, he discovered the excitement of programming contests, and placed in several national and international contests, such as the Google Code Jam, the Manila Game Jam, and the ACM ICPC. While competing in college, Tim freelanced for a couple of years until he was found by Kalibrr, the first YC-backed company in the Philippines, where he now works as its Chief Hacker.
Outside of his work at Kalibrr, Tim is focused on attracting young talent into technology by improving the competitive programming landscape in the Philippines. As Scientific Committee Head of the National Olympiad in Informatics - Philippines, Tim has helped organize one of the first national high school algorithmic programming contests, and seeks to continue on this path.
