Hi! My name is Rohan.

> I’m a 19 year old

bold = a link you can click!


I was born and raised in Melbourne, spent my teen years in Singapore, and am now based in the Bay Area. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Early on, I was infatuated with Green Day (I still am.) To get my constant American Idiot fix I bought an iPod, initiating me into the Apple cult. One day I stumbled upon Xcode, an app you could use to... create other apps! From then on, I became student by day, iOS dev by night.

When I was 14, I won a scholarship to attend Apple's WWDC 2013. It was the most significant week of my life. I joined a global community of young developers seeking to do great things, from which I have come close to some of the most ambitious and impactful young people in the world. I am eternally grateful to Apple for these platforms and opportunities.

In high school, I made lots of things: products, businesses, code, music, articles, etc., most of the time with Lenny Khazan. I also took a two-year high school philosophy course. I now reflect upon these experiences as being absolutely pivotal for my current mindset/outlook on life, goals, and direction going forward.

In 2016, I was admitted to Stanford University. Since arriving, I've been influenced by a few students, alumni, and faculty who've offered invaluable advice for pursuing my goals, and who've shaped many of my perspectives. During freshman fall, I engaged in 4 months of reading and self-reflection. My aim was to take a step back and figure things out, short and long-term, from first principles. I may have failed a couple classes, but those were the most value-adding four months of my life.


If you would like updates on my endeavors, follow me on Twitter, add me on Facebook, ask me stuff on StackOverflow, and check out my GitHub.

Or, ya know, just email me. That’s cool too.
Especially if you’re in the Bay Area and want to chat!
