About Me

Hi, my name is Keven Zhu. I'm a software engineering student currently studying at the University of Western Ontario. I specialize in building responsive and modern web applications.

When I'm not coding, you'll find me on the tennis courts, bouldering, or chowing down at the newest ramen shop.
