I do application and network programming, system administration, a bit of hardware hacking, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Check out my résumé.

1coding: "I have the most fun writing code. In my ideal world, all source is written to be fit for publishing and 'pre-publication cleanup' consists solely of copying GPL headers from my last project."

2security: "I take the security of my systems very seriously. Whenever I configure a box or service, attack models and weak points are the most important considerations."

3networks: "I play with networks for fun and enjoy designing interesting, secure protocols. I have operational experience with the tor, freenet, i2p, and cjdns networks as well as LANs, VPNs, and the Internet."

<misc />

I spend a lot of my time working on systems software projects of one form or another. Right now, I'm a full-time undergrad student at Virginia Tech majoring in CS with minors in Cybersecurity and Math. I work as an undergraduate research assistant in software development in the Medical Informatics and Systems Group at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute. In my spare time, I write software to support the operations of WUVT, Virginia Tech's college radio station. I have skills in problem solving, application development, linux use and adminstration, communications security, applied cryptography, 2D and 3D graphics, 3D modeling and animation, and robotics. I sometimes like to use these skills for the benefit of people who give me bitcoins.
