👋 hello!

I'm Sohi, engineering student by day and tech founder by night. I'm interested in using electronics, robotics, and nanotech to build the devices of the future and augment the human experience. I live by 2 core philosophies: nothing imaginable is impossible to build and if I don't build it, who will?
