Jason is a rising senior at Belmont High School, and he started studying and competing in programming in the 10th grade. In his first year, he went from the bronze (lowest) division to the platinum (highest) division in the USA Computing Olympiad (only around 6-10% of current USACO competitors achieve this). Jason has completed all the problems on the USACO Training site, for competition and for fun. He is also researching computer science in MIT PRIMES. Currently, Jason competes in Google Kickstart rounds, Codeforces rounds, and Topcoder marathon matches for fun. He loves to teach the computer science he has learned.
