Resume_

Researcher, analyist, and data-ninja by day, programmer and freelance developer by passion under the moonlight.

I've been hacking, slashing, and developing for most of my life. As an adolescent, I developed a keen interest in computers and programming through a passion for video games. Over the years, I've worked on numerous projects; of particular notoriety being open source contributions made in the realm of online, persistent world game engines and toolsets, including an ongoing passion project consisting of a set of development tools for creating online role-playing games along with the underlying server-client architecture.

More recent interests include compiler and language design, data science, scraping & automation, and leveraging programming and technology to develop real world solutions, identifying and eliminating inefficienices to ease the burden of unneccessary labor and free individuals to engage in more thoughtful, impactful work. Down with tedium!
