who is ramy zhang?

my identity & purpose

a bit about me


i'm a 4th year computer science and cognitive science double major student at the university of toronto. i'm the events coordinator for our school's game design and development club (utGDDC), and am proud of having previously been project lead for uoft blueprint's pro bono project for sistema toronto, a non-profit for early childhood music education.

in the past, i interned as a founder's associate at opal to build out a community platform for people seeking focus; a software developer at U.CASH, a digital asset converter startup for the unbanked; as well as an innovation intern at deloitte digital, where I worked on wearable prototyping.


games can make people feel heard in a world that can be very lonely. to me, they are the highest form of interactive multimedia art. throughout university, i have joined several game jams to build little experiences, implement game audio, and design sounds, along with many wonderful friends. i want to create things to delight and immerse others, the same way my favourite games have given me hundreds of hours of inspiration. you can find some of my projects on my itch.io page.


i've been in the singing competition space since i was 11, winning both national and international awards. since then, i've moved towards finding a voice that's more my own. i've been a freelance topline writer and session vocalist for 3 years now, as well as a self-produced artist and lead vocalist of an incredible band, called the DMC. together, we have played in venues across north america, myself standing on stages in china as well.
