Who Am I?
I am a 20-year-old CS/MA undergraduate student at the University of Kentucky.
I started learning to program almost a decade ago in order to write video games (what kid didn't want to make games?). My aunt recommended that I learn C++ and Java, and I have been continuously learning ever since.
I was homeschooled for 11 of the 13 years of my primary/secondary education, which left me with a lot of free time. I used it to both further my knowledge of computers, read lots of books and (of course) play video games.
Since I discovered Ubuntu
in 2006, I have been using Linux-based systems as my primary OS. Currently, I run Arch Linux
on a laptop, desktop and server. I may soon be adding a phone to that list.
What Am I Doing?
My current personal project is Forumite
, a more pleasurable tool for reading forums. It is being written in Python (with Django) and ClojureScript. Presently, I am investigating using Om
for the front-end. The code is available here
under GPLv3. Other code I've written is available on my bitbucket
During the school year, I'm enrolled full-time at UK and work under Dr. Nathan Jacobs
in the CS department. Right now, I'm interning in IBM's ExtremeBlue
program in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Guild Wars 2
, League of Legends
whatever time I don't spend coding. Occasionally, I blog
about topics that interest me.
