Hi there, my name is
I rapidly develop high-quality web utilities that perform at scale. Currently, I'm studying Computer Science + Business @ UIC, project managing a team of 7, and mentoring CPS students on behalf of the UIC Cities Project.

01. About Me
Hello there! I’m Radison, a software engineer with a knack for leadership, web + networking technologies, photography, and multisport events. My interest in digital technology started back in middle school when I tinkered with microcontrollers and competed in FIRST LEGO League competitions — it turns out you can learn a lot from bits of plastic and expensive servos.
Fast-forward to today, where I’ve had the privilege of working at a spacecraft manufacturer, an R1 research university, a U.S. Senate campaign, a start-up, and an event management group. Just this past summer, I was a Software Engineering Intern on the Starship Software team at SpaceX! I had an absolute blast helping build the largest rocket on planet Earth.
I’m juggling quite a few responsibilities at the University of Illinois Chicago. For starters, I am studying computer science and business full-time (with a 3.96 GPA, whoop!). I also project manage and work directly with 6+ software developers under the College of Engineering. Together we've developed and shipped over 10 full-stack web applications used by 1000's on campus.
Making an impact is part of my DNA, especially when it comes to personal projects. I recently gave three distinct 300-level guest lectures at UIC and one lecture internally at SpaceX about Exploding Chickens — a popular web-based card game I built with my friends in the era of COVID-19. We dove deep into project management, design patterns, code review, and test coverage.
Exploding Chickens fanned the flames (literally) and acted as a springboard for both my professional skills and further projects down the line. I now independently host over 10 web services, 2 web products generating revenue, and 5 organizational members who help make these ideas a reality.
In my spare time, I love to build things with my hands (SAE Formula E, woodworking, small electronics), volunteer in the community (UIC Cities Project), and compete in endurance triathlons. In August 2022, I finished 214th out of 2,456 in the Chicago Triathlon, Olympic distance — my first ever multisport race.
