I code.

Hi There

I am a freelance software developer currently residing in Salt Lake City. I am originally from upstate New York, which sounds a lot cooler if you leave out the "upstate."

My passion is tech, whether that is the latest OS, the hottest wearable, or the newest addition to the IoT space.

I started coding in the age of the dinosaurs (2011). Before this I was working with hardware. I switched when my cache of fried transistors reached a count of 183.

If I'm not coding or doing something else tech-related, I'm probably in a coma. Or my day job. Which is the same thing.

By the way, if the lowercase titles bother you, chill. I'm a hardcore grammar nazi. Just enjoy the art.

Projects

School is a thing, and takes an inordinate amount of time and effort. As a result, all of the projects listed here have been unofficially retired.

 

Dimension 4

A fully-featured time-management suite with many features not found in mid-range paid calendaring solutions, this is currently my largest project, at over 230K lines of in-house code.

My Blog

Created to provide a faster alternative to WordPress, this site supports creating/editing posts, comments, and an account-management system, besides search, RSS feed, and tag systems.

Note that, since switching hosting over to Google App Engine, I have not updated the persistence layer. As a result, it's basically a boring, static site right now.

Hands-Free: PowerPoint

A fully-functional voice-controlled PowerPoint "clicker," this project was an experiment into natural language processing.

School

I am currently a senior at Neumont University, where I toil with blood, sweat, and tears towards my bachelor's in Computer Science. I mean, I would tell you that most of my classes are easy, but you would just think me pretentious.

Here are some of the cooler classes I've taken:

 

My GPA is currently at a 4.0. Fingers crossed that I didn't just jinx myself.

Hit Me Up

Like what you've seen so far? (Translation: Want to throw money at me?) I would love to get in touch with you!
