What is your Topcoder story?

I was TCO Algorithm finalist a few times and after spectating Marathon finals I got really interested and decided to take it more seriously. In 2014 I managed to advance to my first Marathon finals. This year online rounds were much harder but got lucky and will be competing in my second Marathon finals.

Tell us about something in your life, outside of Topcoder, that you are most proud of.

I work in silicon valley with a company which was a very small startup sponsoring TCO in 2011 when I met them. It is exciting to see the company grow so fast since then.

If you were in charge of Topcoder for the day, what rule would you institute?

Every time your code doesn't compile you have to do a push up


We asked our finalists to play the word association game. We gave them a word and they gave us the first word that popped into their head.
