Who Am I?

Hey there!

My name is Edwin Mak (aka Cintosyntax) and I am a full-stack web developer currently living in New York City. My adventure in software engineering began in entrepreneurship that eventually lead me to become a founding engineer of a venture backed logistics company. I spend my days building my craft as a Software Engineer by tackling projects that range from writing raw SQL to building react components. My engineering approach favors pragmatism. I operate with a "get stuff done" attitude balanced with an appreciation of well designed code built for changeability rather than perfection.

When I am not wearing my engineering hat, I spend my leisure time scouring hacker news, practicing capoeira, reading novels, or traveling.
