Welcome!

This is a mutlifunctional personal page. I use it to share public aspects of my life and occasionally publish technical articles. The site is served by linode, a site that provides high quality virtual private linux servers. The code for most of the site is hosted publically by the folks at github, a place for programmers to share open source projects and easily collaborate with others. Finally, the DNS is handled by cloudflare.


bio:

Critical thinking and the scientific process have intrigued me from an early age. When I was in seventh grade my friend and I entered a science fair with a project which involved writing code to estimate the landing distance of model rockets away from the launch site. I called it the "Rocket Trajectory Mapper," and it was written in Liberty Basic. Although my code was far from useful or interesting, the process that I used to compose it— my first non-trivial program which was reviewed by a third party— would stay with me to this day. Since then, I have developed my understanding of machines and science significantly.

I graduated with a degree in Computer Science from Penn State University in 2013. To date, I have undertaken many projects in a diverse array of development environments and languages. My development platform of choice is Debian GNU/Linux. Operating system development fascinates me, and I have spent many a sleep deprived night staring intently into the masses of macros and hackery that is the Linux kernel.

In my spare time I also enjoy riding my bicycle. My favorite food is cheese of any kind, but especially havarti and mozzarella.
