What I Do

  • Type Things

    I've been programming and building computers since 2015, where I won the 1st place prize at the school's science fair for my work with Python and the original Raspberry Pi. Since then, I have studied programming and computer science, and I have a special interest in Scala and Swift. Recently I worked on a bespoke community mod for DayZ. The mod has over 11000 subscribers for a community of over 53000 members. I currently work as a Cybersecurity Specialist for the State of California.

  • Play Things

    Since my first Leapster and Sega Genesis I've taken special liking to playing video games. I was part of my first ever competitive official MLG Halo: Reach clan in 2012 and the young age of 12. We played one match, lost, and immediately disbanded. I prefer first-person shooters, RPG's, and 4X/grand strategy games.

  • Study Things

    I'm a senior studying computer science at California State University, Sacramento. I will be graduating in the fall of 2021.
    Thanks to COVID-19 I will likely be graduating in the winter of 2023. But, who knows.

  • Security Things

    I am a budding security / physical penetration tester with an extense background in Urban Exploration.
