Jonathan Murata


Glad you could make it here today! My name is Jonathan Murata, but I go by Jon since most people (myself included) are too lazy to say Jonathan. I'm a senior double majoring in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. Yes, it's quite the mouthful every time I have to say it, so I usually just say I'm CS.

If you're interested in learning more about me, you've come to the right place! Scroll down to see some cool stuff. If you just want an overview, this box should suffice! I was born and raised in Hawaii, but you probably couldn't tell given my pidgin and surfing skills. I'm currently living in Berkeley, CA and am applying for jobs/thinking about graduate school, but we'll see where life takes me. If you are a potential employer, don't worry; the only thing I'm indecisive about is this one decision and where to eat lunch.

In the past few semesters, a lot of my time has been devoted to TA'ing for CS classes. In the little free time I have, I like to do the basics: eat good food and take long naps. When that gets a little too boring, I bake (mostly cookies), hang out with friends, play videogames, and think about how I should be coding or something instead of watching youtube videos.
