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've been serving as the Treasurer of the Cybersecurity Club at Virginia Tech. 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.
