About Me

I am a programmer at PatronGG, a early stage startup in Berlin, DE. I am also a gamer, an athlete, and a hobbiest level mathematician, musician, and audiophile. I've debated starting a blog several times, but never really felt it was the move for me. I am interested in working in any field of sosftware development or mathematical analysis. In my free time, I can be found programming, playing video games, or sometimes both.

Computer Programming Skills

I believe in strong fundamental programming skills. I am fluent in C/C++, along with many of it's dialects, such as Objective-C and Arduino-C. I am also fluent with Python, Javascript. I also know a thing or two about CSS, but it's really not my strong suit. I'm also pretty good with web backends and infrastructure (anything from NodeJS to Nginx. Not a huge jump alphabetically, but you get the point). Recently, I've been playing with GoLang as well. I also see programming as a tool to do creative work, wether it's data mining, design work, or something else

Education

I received my Bachelor's of Science Degree in Computer Science at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City, South Dakota. I also completed a Minor of Mathematics. I spent my spring 2016 semester studying in Reading, England because I felt like it.

My coursework primarily focused on discrete and abstract mathematics, algorithms, software engineering, computer security, operating systems, and compilers. In my free time I worked on my Javascript-Fu and website skills, from Sys-Admin stuff to front-end.

As extra-curricular activities, I held leadership positions in multiple societies, specifically I was the starting AD Carry for the SDSMT eSports Association League of Legends Team, and the Vice President for the SDSMT Chapter of the ACM for 2016. I was also nominated for and accepted into the SDSMT Computer Science Department Leadership Hall of Fame

Before uni I studied at Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colorado.

Activities and Interests

I am at heart a gamer. I love League of Legends, table-top gaming (specifically DND 5e and Cthulhu), RPGs, rogue-likes, or emulated classics. I follow eSports quite closely, although I have no favourite team. I also enjoy going to a nice Biergarten, practicing/learning languages, or biking about.

I am a musician, playing piano and drums, with several years of experience on both instruments. Academically, I am very interested higher mathematics and applying it to computer science. Furthermore, I am eager to learn about linguistics, literature, and history.

Currently I am working on a few personal projects, not the least of which is this very website. Other projects include desigining / building my own Pebble watchface, mostly because I don't like any of the ones on the Pebble Store.
