Profile:

Dev’s love for video games goes beyond the fun of playing; he has an acute appreciation for video game music as well. When he isn’t playing video games, Dev is often reading or playing basketball. He is very dedicated to karate and has won a number of awards in martial arts. Dev likes pretty much any food as long as it’s made by his mom — and as long as it doesn't include mustard, which he's never tried. When he is older, he hopes to become an astronaut. Dev's sister Rani participated in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in 2010, and Dev previously participated in 2012.
