Name: Kyu Mok (Ricky) Kim

Age: 24

Ricky is a recent graduate of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering from University of Toronto with emphasis in Analytics. While at university, he learned data science and financial engineering skills using computer programming languages such as Python, MATLAB, and VBA. He has also self-taught numerous additional programming languages and big data technologies from Hadoop to Javascript. See below for his technical skills. Ricky is highly motivated as he codes every day to improve his programming skills. However, he does not believe in pushing code to Git everyday as he can just show it on his website which is more user friendly. Ricky seeks to work with great people who has similar ambition and wants to learn and apply his knowledge to real world applications.
