hi, i'm arshi.

I’m a software engineer at Twitter. I care deeply about ethics in engineering and try to incorporate intention-based design into everything I build.

I’m from San Francisco and a proud Warriors fan. I attended Santa Clara University for three years, obtaining my bachelor’s in Computer Science & Engineering with a minor in Math.

Outside of work, you'll find me playing the piano or guitar, listening to music or buying sneakers.

If you love to read, or learn to love reading, you will have an amazing life. Period. Life will always have hardships, pressure, and incredibly annoying people, but books will make it all worthwhile. In books, you will find your North Star, and you will find you, which is why you are here. -Anne Lamott

Here are some books that have allowed me to live my life with intention and purpose. Books in bold have impacted my life deeply. I get much more value out of these if I have a conversation with others, so I’m always open to discuss thoughts. I'd love to hear from you if you have any recommendations as well.
